The Barker Welfare Foundation
The Foundationís mission is to make grants to qualified charitable organizations whose initiatives improve the quality of life, with an emphasis on strengthening youth and families and to reflect the philosophy of Catherine Baker Hickox, the founder. Consideration will be given to applications from institutions and agencies operating in the field of health, welfare, education, cultural activities, and civic affairs, primarily serving New York City (the five boroughs only) and Michigan City, Ind. At one time, the Foundation also awarded grants to Chicago organizations, but the funding policy has changed. Requests for funding from Chicago organizations will no longer be3 accepted unless invited (initiated) by the Foundation. Some additional information can be found on the Web site.
