Addressing the unmet needs of the community
The purpose of the Barrington Area Community Foundation is to establish a permanent, long-term fund for the betterment of the community. The Foundation will use the annual proceeds to support initiatives that benefit the community and maintain our quality of life.
Each grant recipient demonstrated it was reaching an unserved group of local citizens with a program that did not duplicate other community charities. All grants are audited and reported to the community. The Foundation will not grant to organizations that are largely tax-supported.
