- To raise in excess of $4,000,000 in Endowment Funds over the next six years to enable the Foundation to make grants of more than $200,000 per year
- To achieve financial sustainability
- To serve all registered charities
- To raise the level of philanthropy for the better of our community
The Barrie Community Foundation is a public foundation that builds and manages endowment funds to support charitable activities in Barrie and area. The Barrie Community Foundation pools the charitable gifts of many donors to create permanent, income earning endowment funds – a nest egg that will always be there to benefit the communities. A donation, large or small, will make a difference, now and forever.
The Barrie Community Foundation uses the income earned by invested funds to give grants to a wide range of community groups; the original investment is left to grow over time. The earnings are used for particular charitable programs that the donor chooses to support; i.e. seniors, youth, low-income, recreation, health, environment, art, and music. Donors can choose to support many local initiatives or designate to their favourite cause. The funds that are raised in the community support Barrie and its surrounding area.
