The Barr Foundation’s mission is to invest in human, natural, and creative potential, serving as thoughtful stewards and catalysts. Based in Boston, the Foundation focuses regionally, and selectively engages nationally, working in partnership with nonprofits, foundations, the public sector, and civic and business leaders to elevate the arts and creative expression, advance equitable solutions for climate change, and expand educational opportunity.
Clean energy, climate resilience, and mobility.
We recognize that linking the issues of climate, COVID-19, and racial equity will be essential to prevent backsliding on existing climate protections and to enable a renewed focus on the important public health benefits of climate action.
