Giving Center


Giving you tools for community impact.

The Barry Community Foundation’s mission is to improve lives by bridging resources. These resources come in the form of time, talent and treasure donated by generous families, businesses and individuals in our community. It is our job to be good stewards of these gifts and to match them with community needs.

Each year, through our granting process, we partner together to match these resources with community needs to make a lasting impact in our community.
