JULY 2020 UPDATE
The current COVID-19 crisis has the nonprofit sector facing challenges on an unprecedented scale. The financial health of The Barber Fund was significantly impacted. Our financial resources have been dwindling so we are forced to scale back due to lack of available funds. In addition, we are an all-volunteer organization and all our staff was personally impacted by this disaster which has left us grappling with lower capacity to operate and provide services.
Regrettably, due to these factors we are unable to offer assistance at this time.
All applications received will be stored and reviewed in order received once we have the funds available. A board member will personally reach out, via email and phone call, to the point of contact listed on the application at that time.
Please continue to follow us for continued updates. Stay safe, stay positive, and remember to wear your mask.
We are all in this together. One Love!
The Barber Fund is a grassroots 501(c)3 foundation, established in 2014.
We are an ALL-VOLUNTEER ORGANIZATION located in Orlando, Florida.
Our mission is to help those battling cancer by paying household expenses so that these warriors & their families can focus on healing. We have paid mortgages,
power bills, medical bills, phone bills, purchased groceries, chaperoned
appointments, cared for animals, and so much more.
*Due to our size restraints, we are only able to accept applications for assistance from Florida residents at this time. But stay connected with us while we GROW!
John "Tweeka" Barber
The Barber Fund was Co-Founded by the late John "Tweeka" Barber while fighting a form of Cancer called Sinonasal Carcinoma. Sadly, John lost his battle in 2011, a year after rigorous treatment including many rounds of Chemotherapy and Radiation.
John may have lost his battle but today his legacy lives on. John touched many lives as an Entertainer, Philanthropist and a pillar in the Orlando Community. So in true
"TWEEKA" fashion, he wanted to create something that would keep his spirit alive,
THE BARBER FUND!
Named after the song by ESTELLE.
The words are incredible!
Not only do we help our recipients and their loved ones celebrate life and give them the support they need while on their cancer journey but we also strive to bring joy and unity to our community. We call this the
ONE LOVE MOVEMENT, an unprecedented, community-wide effort devoted to standing together as one to make a difference!
Join the One Love movement to become a part of something truly inspirational.
