Our Work

Our Impact Areas

Barancik Foundation works alongside a network of partners to address challenges that immediately affect people’s lives and ultimately impact all of Sarasota and the wider area. Our grants work in tandem, transcending single issues and improving our community holistically.

Education Access and Quality

When students succeed, our entire community prospers. We invest in high-quality education so that everyone has the opportunity to learn and to fulfill their potential.

Economic Stability

Opportunity for steady work, the ability to earn sufficient income, and stability at home all are crucial for good health and well-being. We seek to help families secure the means to meet their basic needs and then achieve more.

Healthcare Access and Quality

Timely, safe, and effective healthcare improves quality of life and builds resilience. Mental health is closely connected to physical health and profoundly affects individual and community well-being. We invest in access to and use of high-quality healthcare services, particularly for those who struggle.

Neighborhood and Environment

Place matters. Everyone deserves to live in a healthy home and to enjoy clean natural places and open public spaces. We support solutions that promote health, safety, and vitality in our neighborhoods and foster sustainability of our unique natural surroundings.

Social and Community Well-Being

Our relationships with one another greatly affect our individual well-being. Positive connections and social-support systems provide help and hope, even amid challenges beyond one’s control. The humanizing influence of the arts is essential too. We believe in fostering civic engagement, social cohesion, and equitable inclusion, so everyone can fully participate in and benefit from their community.

Medical Research

Barancik Foundation supports efforts to innovate medical research designed to impact the potential pathway for treatment and cure of issues that have affected the Barancik family.
