About our Foundation


Our Mission

The Barnwell Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds to provide all children at Barnwell Elementary with an exceptional primary school education.  Directed by a board of parent volunteers, our primary purpose is to fund technology, educational programs and all general needs not provided by federal, state, school district or Parent Teacher Association (“PTA”) budgets.

 

Our Vision

Our Vision for Barnwell Foundation is that our parents, Principal, teachers, staff, and community members have a clear understanding of our mission, confident in our stewardship, a unifying connection to our school and a strong commitment to contributing their time, talent and/or donation.

 

Our Values

To achieve this Vision, we operate according to the following values:

 

Education

We are committed to excellence in education.  We support Barnwell Elementary's mission of having all students learning at high levels, working closely with our Principal, teachers and staff to raise the funds required to support this objective.

 

Open Communication

We believe in open communication.  We communicate Barnwell Foundation's goals clearly and often to ensure that our Mission is understood by all potential contributors.

 

Responsible Stewardship 

We are committed to responsible stewardship.  We observe ethical standards of conduct, uniform accounting principles and transparency in financial reporting to earn and retain the confidence and trust of all contributors.    

 

Unity & Cooperation

We work together in a spirit of mutual respect and cooperation with our Barnwell parents, Principal, teachers, PTA and community members to achieve our common goals.

 

Diversity in Contribution

We value diversity in contribution.  We actively seek to engage all Barnwell parents, our Principal, teachers and community members, contributing to the success of Barnwell by giving their time, talents, and/or donations.
