The Barra Foundation seeks to support and encourage innovation, a key element to discovering new and more effective ways to serve the ever-changing needs in communities. We fund organizations and projects that enable our Foundation to achieve greater social impact in the Philadelphia five-county region through strategic grantmaking in the areas of Arts & Culture, Human Services, Health and Education.
The Foundation pursues two goals in its grantmaking:
- To advance the health, education, well-being, achievement and life prospects of low-income, underserved individuals and communities.
- To enrich the quality of life for all by promoting the sustainability of a vibrant arts and cultural community.
