Addressing the unmet needs of the community

Our Purpose

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.

Grant Workshop Scheduled

2023-2024 Grant Workshop was held at The Barrington White House on Thursday, November 9, 2023 from 4:00pm – 4:45pm with a reception following from 5:45pm – 7:00pm.

Grants

Each grant recipient should demonstrate that they are reaching an unserved group of local citizens with a program that does 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.

Estimated Grant Level – 2024

Grant Awards for 2024 are estimated to total $400,000. We look forward to the 2024 grant review process and announcing the grant award winners in April of 2024!
