Mahatma Gandhi once said, "A man's true wealth hereafter is the good he has done to his fellowmen." Helping others is truly a rewarding experience that has helped me live a more fulfilling, purpose-driven, and optimistic life. My ultimate goal is to create a diverse set of volunteering opportunities that are fun, social, and rewarding so that you can easily engage and give back to the community, while meeting like-minded and uplifting people! The success of these initiatives relies 100% on your participation! So please RSVP and invite your friends and family along!
Thank you for your support! We hope to see you at one of our events in the near future!

Why does Barbera Foundation charge for some of the events?
Ticket sales go towards supporting the particular event, a fundraising initiative, and overhead expenses that the Barbera Foundation incurs. For example, ticket sales from a dinner at a homeless shelter may go towards supporting another charity like the Lymphoma and Leukemia Society, or a fundraising initiative of the Barbera Foundation (purchasing sleeping bags for the homeless, or flowers for survivors of domestic violence). Ticket sales also go to cover some of the admin expenses of the Barbera Foundation (for example business insurance). In a nutshell, it is a "kill two birds with one stone" approach: Volunteers donate their time by cleaning national parks, serving dinner to the homeless, etc. while simultaneously donating money to support the Barbera Foundation and other fundraising initiatives. Please review our financials here for more information on how every $1 is spent.
Current and Future Fundraising Initiatives:
Spring 2020: Ticket sales from events will go towards supporting the elderly population in Northern, VA, DC, and Maryland.
