If you or someone you know in the state of Florida who is battling cancer and would like to see how The Barber Fund can help, please follow the steps below. No one needs to face cancer alone! WE ARE HERE TO HELP.
* The Barber Fund is an all-volunteer organization where volunteers manage the organization. Unfortunately, due to our restraints, we are only able to accept applications for assistance from FLORIDA RESIDENTS at this time. We are not able to monetarily assist everyone that applies for a grant. We are proud to have assisted in many other ways by chaperoning appointments, helping care for animals, offering counseling sessions and so much more.
Download our Grant Application & fill out in full. Incomplete applications will not be prioritized.
The completion of our application does not guarantee your request for financial assistance will be approved. The Barber Funds ability to offer financial assistance is solely based on our fundraising activities and financial support from the community, as a result, we cannot and do not guarantee your request for assistance will be approved. Assistance requests are serviced on a first-come-first-serve basis however, depending on need the order of assistance may change.
Proof of diagnosis is required to be delivered by your physician.
This is required to be mailed (certified) or emailed DIRECTLY FROM the Primary Physician of the recipient. PLEASE DO NOT SEND YOUR PERSONAL MEDICAL RECORDS. We only need a letter from your physician stating that you are under his care and for what type of cancer.
