What’s more challenging than the Barber Beast on the Bay’s 10 miles, 30 obstacle course? Fundraising on top of it all!
Thank you for considering a donation to Barber National Institute through our 2021 Beast Fundraising Campaign! Each fundraiser’s base goal is to raise $500 by noon on Friday, September 3, 2021. Your support not only helps the fundraisers reach their goal but the more than 6,300 children and adults with autism, intellectual disabilities or behavioral health challenges that Barber National Institute serves annually.
At the Barber National Institute, we believe that all persons have the capacity for growth and fulfillment, and to that end, they must be afforded every opportunity to attain the greatest use of their potential within themselves and their community.
Your donation will truly make a difference. In fact, we are proud to tell our donors that, on average over the past seven years, 98.5% of every dollar is used for services that are supporting our individuals and their families at the Barber National Institute.
*Note - All fundraisers must meet their minimum $500 commitment by noon on Friday, September 3, 2021; anyone who has not raised the $500 will be charged the full registration cost of $125. In order to be considered for a prize, all donations must be received by the Barber National Institute by noon on Wednesday, September 8. – If you choose to mail in a check, please make payable to the Dr. Gertrude A. Barber Foundation. In the memo, include “2021 Beast Fundraiser: *Fundraiser’s Name*.”
