 Erie Gives Donation

Thank You, Erie Gives Donors!

Thanks to gifts from 131 generous donors, the Barber National Institute set a new record this year for Erie Gives. With the pro-rated match from the Erie Community Foundation and its sponsors, we received $16,543 to help fund services for our children and adults.

Our donors are supporting resources for many programs including:

  • A state-of-the-art education for more than 240 students in the Elizabeth Lee Black School who come here from 22 school districts across Northwestern Pennsylvania.
  • Job training and placement for adults with employers in the community.
  • A wide range of therapies to help babies and toddlers reach their fullest potential in the Bright Beginning Early Intervention program.
  • Behavioral health services for children, adults and families dealing with depression, anxiety and other challenges in our community.

For the Barber Foundation, every donation makes a difference. On average of the past eight years, 98 cents of every dollar is used to support programs for our children, adults and families.

To our friends and donors who are committed to supporting our mission: thank you for helping us make dreams come true.
