Barberton Community Foundation's 2022 Annual Report

2022 was the year of listening. We listened to the community and conducted a community-wide needs assessment, increased our grants and scholarship budgets and created new partnerships and programs through our economic development initiatives.

Scholarship Awards Ceremony

Thank you to everyone who attended the Scholarship Awards Ceremony.

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.

Giving for Barberton's Future

Did you know Barberton Community Foundation holds more than 100 funds? We thank our generous donors for establishing these funds, and invite the community to learn more about them. 

Thank you
