Our History

Whether it was children in need or the forgotten elderly, Fred and Merilyn were always there with a warm embrace, welcoming home, and loving heart. The teaching of “to whom much is given, much is expected” was a deep belief and commitment of Fred and Merilyn. This same philanthropic commitment lives on in the Bame family; achieved through Bame Foundation and the gifts and actions quietly shared with humankind.
