Gayle Farman, In Memoriam

Gayle Farman, Passport For Good Founder and President

It is with deep sorrow that we share the sad news that Passport For Good’s Founder and President, Gayle Farman, passed away on March 25, 2020 following a brief illness. Gayle was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in late January and the disease took her from us far too quickly.

Gayle was a passionate leader, advocate, and champion for inclusion. As a parent of two daughters and an active volunteer on non-profit community boards, she observed that there was no easy solution for students and schools to capture the positive impact they were making in their communities, and so she founded Passport For Good in 2015. The platform has provided a digital solution to chronicle and measure community engagement for dozens of schools and thousands of students.

Prior to founding Passport For Good, Gayle enjoyed a successful 25-year career as a non-profit leader, focusing on advocacy and resource development for health care, developmental disabilities, long-term care and behavioral health care. She secured and directed more than $5 million in workforce retraining, emergency preparedness and quality improvement grants in the health and human services sectors.

Gayle was a force for good in this world and her way of making everyone feel needed and appreciated touched us all profoundly. She will be missed tremendously.

The Passport For Good team mourns her passing and we extend our sincere condolences to her husband, Peter, and daughters, Emma and Katie.
