The Barton School Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. The purpose of the foundation is to provide financial support for the mission of Clara Barton Open School, located in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Money raised through the Barton School Foundation is used for programs that enhance the open education experience at Barton that are NOT funded by district, state, or federal money. Programs such as:

  • Field trip scholarships
  • School-wide & social events
  • Teacher supplies
  • Tutors
  • Visiting artist programs
  • Fine arts performances (e.g. Sinfonia)
  • Childcare for parent meetings
  • Student directory
  • Staff development (e.g. Responsive Classroom)
  • Midwest Food Connection
  • Special projects at Principal’s request

These programs would NOT be offered at Barton if not for your generous support.

The Barton School Foundation manages the money raised through donations to the Barton School Fund and various fundraising activities, then distributes the money to support Clara Barton Open School in its mission.

The Barton Leadership Council consists of the principal, staff representatives, and parent representatives. The council elects the board of the Foundation and assists the principal in setting priorities for distribution of funds. The Foundation board approves the budget set by the principal and the Barton Leadership Council.
