Our Donors Make the Difference
Since 1989, the Barnesville Area Community Fund has given back over $1.7 million to the Barnesville area.
Each and every day, our Barnesville Area Community Fund is touching people’s lives.
Throughout every part of the community you see projects that were funded through the assistance of the Community Fund….parks and playgrounds, libraries and emergency services; as well as new businesses and services. Visit with your friends and neighbors and you’ll hear stories of students who received scholarships and have gone on to make a difference; or families whose lives were changed by donations that helped them through a medical crisis.
The Board of Directors of the Barnesville Area Community Fund is thankful for your support and involvement of the Barnesville area. This publication is but a snapshot of the difference your gifts have made in the past.
