Donors Who Give Back

When we ask our donors why they choose to establish funds here, we often hear them say, “I want to give back.” When you decide to give back through the Foundation, we help you to make your philanthropy personal, meaningful, and fulfilling. It’s our privlege to connect donors – and your charitable interests and resources – with local needs.

Bringing the History of Barberton to Life

Barberton’s third grade students learn about local history as a part of their social studies curriculum. Now, thanks to a grant from Barberton Community Foundation, local author Conrad Storad has been commissioned by the schools to write a book on local history and update the class and bring the history of Barberton to life.
