We would like to share that our 2016 Annual Reports are in! Learn about all the exciting ways the Barberton Community Foundation is working hard to strengthen our community. The Foundation focuses on Community Image, Educational Excellence, Social Service and Economic Development. Because of our generous donors and fund holders we have been able to provide support for scholarships to Barberton students and Quarterly Grants to programs such as Mum Fest, Info Line, food distribution from the Akron Canton Regional Food Band and more.
Our Board of Directors is committed to our mission of improving the quality of life for Barberton residents through the continual giving power of the original endowment and through funds established by donors with their hearts focused on Barberton. We are proud of what our community has been able to accomplish, and we need your help to continue to invest in Barberton’s future.
We have a very exciting 2017 planned and hope to see you around Barberton. Events include the Barberton Better Block which will be on July 28 & 29 on Second Street downtown. Additionally, we will be celebrating our 21st year at the BCF Annual Dinner on Thursday, November 2.
Thank you for helping us Build a Better Barberton!
