The Barbasol Foundation
In line with the mission of Perio - the parent company of Barbasol and Pure Silk brands - the Barbasol Foundation was established in order to share the resources of the company with charitable causes. The main objective of the Barbasol Foundation is to support those charitable organizations focused on children.
Our Giving Priorities
The Barbasol Foundation considers funding requests from 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations.
The majority of our contributions go towards those causes that benefit children in the greater Columbus, Ohio area.
We also fund organizations operating within the county of Ashland, Ohio, the home of our manufacturing facility.
The Barbasol Foundation considers requests to support medical research, community food banks, homeless shelters, and other nonprofit social services as resources are available.
The Barbasol Foundation is proud of our charitable work. We have several ongoing relationships with nonprofits in Ohio and beyond – we consider these to be our partner organizations.
Another part of our charitable giving is the annual Barbasol Foundation greater Columbus, Ohio grant program. These grants provide funds to
501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations for a specific program, project, or purchase.
Before taking the time to apply, please read our giving priorities to determine whether your organization aligns with the Barbasol Foundation’s objectives. Programs that provide food, shelter, clothing, health care, education and counseling to disadvantaged children and teens are given priority consideration.
The greater-Columbus grant program is only open to those organizations located within Franklin County or primarily serve within this area.
We do not fund the following: individuals; organizations that discriminate on the basis of age, sex, race, religion, national origin or disability with respect to employment, volunteer participation or the provision of services; churches and religious or sectarian organizations; sports teams; or political candidates or campaigns.
The Foundation will generally not fund capital improvements, indirect costs, fringe benefits, overhead, travel expenses, endowment campaigns, facility fees, storage units, incentives, curriculum writing, staff development, or awards. Since the Foundation supports projects, any staff compensation should be clearly related to the services provided through the project work as opposed to salaries and general operating costs.
Application Deadline: August 15
Notification of Grantees: October 31
The 2022/2023 grant application is closed. The 2023-2024 application will be available in late Spring 2023.
The Barbasol Foundation works with the Cleveland Foodbank to donate product to more than 650 programs in Northeast Ohio. This partnership enables the Barbasol Foundation to streamline and maximize our giving potential by eliminating freight costs and by targeting local communities in the counties of Ashland, Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake and Richland. By primarily giving back to the counties closest to our manufacturing facility, the Barbasol Foundation advances its commitment to supporting the communities that sustain our company.
