Enabling all of us, individual and corporate citizens, to give back to our community by building permanent legacies…
The Barrie Community Foundation is a public foundation that builds and manages endowment funds to support charitable activities in Barrie and area.
Endowment funds are “forever” funds, meaning that the original capital contributed as well as subsequent donations to the fund are never encroached upon or spent but continue to grow over time. A portion of the investment income generated from the funds are granted out on an annual basis to support the causes the funds were set up to support.
A donation, large or small, will make a difference, now and forever.

Throughout the pandemic, the Barrie Community Foundation has granted more than $500,000 to organizations – on the front lines of the COVID-19 response. These funds have come from different streams in the Barrie Community Foundation – our endowment fund grants, our local Community Crisis Fund, and the Federal Emergency Community Support Fund that we administered on a local level. These grants ranged from $1,000-$20,000.
