There is a poem that begins, “I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something….”
In 2017, with the help of fellow barn-loving folks,. Barn Believers Community Project Fund was created with the Battle Creek Community Foundation. We set out to raise enough money in its first year to pay for a country music event to celebrate barns, held at the famous Barn Theatre of Augusta, and, to have $10,000 set aside to begin building a grant making fund. There were critics who said it couldn’t be done.
The concert was a success, more than paid for itself, and the Barn Believers Fund is growing. The critics misjudged the passion and positive energy of people who realize that time is of the essence for saving traditional barns and are willing to forego egos and turf to make good things happen. The Fund is now able to make grants to nonprofit organizations at the $1,000 level with a match (need not be 100%) from the grantseeker.
