Upcoming Events


The Barberton Community Foundation will be celebrating its 20th anniversary of building a better Barberton this year.

We have partnered with community organizations throughout Barberton to celebrate this milestone. Each month will have a contest associated with the theme and provide information about the Barberton Community Foundation as well as our community partner. Each contest will be posted to our Facebook page with details. To participate, stop into the Foundation or visit us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/barbertoncommunityfoundation.

Throughout the year we will have different monthly themes that correspond with focus areas of Community Image, Educational Excellence, Economic Development and Social Service.

It’s an exciting time to live or work in Barberton! Along with our anniversary, the City of Barberton will be commemorating 125 years. The Foundation looks forward to being a part of this historic year for Barberton, as we continue to think about the future and how to best improve the quality of life for Barberton residents.
