The Barkley Foundation
The Barkley Foundation is a 501(c)(3) Florida not-for-profit corporation, founded in June, 1989, and was created to encourage charitable giving among the Barkley family and their friends. Gifts shall be to other 501(c)(3) organizations with causes in harmony with the family wishes. There is an online search of IRS Publication 78 Index of Charities.
This Foundation also provided family members with an occasion to work together, instead of drifting apart in these very mobile times. It's part of the idea that we stick together and look out for one another.
We solicited neither grants nor support from the general public. We entertained no grant applications from outside sources. The majority of our support came from family members and we gave to educational, religious or healing organizations like these:
In light of the 2017 changes to the tax laws, our foundation no longer produced relevant tax advantages, so as of March, 2019, we have shut down and dissolved our corporation. A final 990-PF for 2019 was filed January 2020. It's been a good run.
We are part of a never ending heritage.
