Keeping Barker strong, preserving our enduring commitment to serve children and families for a lifetime

Throughout our history, Barker has enjoyed tremendous annual giving and other financial support from Barker families and friends, corporate sponsors, grants and other monetary gifts.

But today, Barker operates in an increasingly challenging climate. To protect our efforts to strengthen and expand vital programs and services, as well as safeguard our ability to serve families well into the 21st century, The Legacy Fund creates a substantial and protected financial base to help keep us strong and vital.

Income from The Legacy Fund provides a secure financial safety net, allowing us to work in a stable, debt-free environment – assured in our ability to provide services so crucial to all members of the adoption community today, tomorrow, and in the many years to come.
