It is the chosen mission of the Barrow Community Foundation to enhance quality of life by focusing on educational, social, cultural, environmental, and economic needs of the residents of Barrow County, Georgia; and to fund projects and non-profit agencies that accomplish our mission.
This mission allows us to connect philanthropic partners with receiving partners that can use funds provided by them through the Foundation to advance their service to our community.
Our goal is simple: to unify our community by being stewards through generous neighborly acts.
PARTNERSHIP through PHILANTHROPY
Partnership is a choice and we allow you to forge that bond in different ways. Philanthropic donations can be directed to a specific project or you may choose to allow the Foundation to determine the best use of the funds you have entrusted to us.
Becoming a Partner allows you the opportunity to build a legacy supporting the growth of your community without having to manage contributions individually.
We commit to you that your resources will support only projects and initiatives in Barrow County. Like any responsible company, our records of fund use will always be made available to you as we promise to be fiscally accountable to you, our Partner.
Possibility is such a simple word. The idea is endless and some people lack the resources to make possible the truest of needs. They lack not the desire or the courage to help. They see the need and the possibility of a solution. They may lack the financial resource to serve an identified opportunity to advance the community as a whole. They may simply lack the relationship with people who can help fund the solution.
The Foundation serves as the conduit, connecting philanthropic desire with the opportunity to leave a living legacy.
Building Community is about unity and bringing resources together to meet needs for advancement of the greater goal. The core value of the Foundation is to be stewards for growth and progress in our community resulting in a desire for all of our neighbors to be involved in building a unified society with the common goal of helping those around us.
Whether the project is building a playground, supporting school programs, supporting the revitalization of our historic structures, providing meals to elder and disabled citizens, or a myriad of other valuable services, Barrow Community Foundation is there to help.
The Foundation facilitates connections that strengthen the community we serve by supporting agencies and programs that encourage involvement in the advancement of our community.
We offer a simplified course for gifting partners to make a difference in the community that has allowed their success. A gift can be distributed directly to a single organization or in part to several organizations that support the mission of the Foundation to unify and facilitate the growth and progress of the Barrow County community.
