The Barnum Foundation for Life is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was founded in 2006 by Paul and Mindee Blanco. The mission of the Barnum Foundation for Life is to improve the quality of life for the children and families we serve through actions that promote change and deepen connections within our community.
Since its inception in 2006, the Barnum Foundation for Life has supported hundreds of organizations throughout the North East that are working to better the lives of those in need throughout the community. In addition, the Foundation hosts several of its own charitable functions throughout the year.
A major initiative of the Foundation is the annual Bikes for Kids Program, through which underserved children in our community and their families attend a free and fun event where they are surprised with a brand new bike and helmet.
In addition to our Bikes for Kids Program, funds raised for the Foundation throughout the years support a wide range of community organizations serving the needs of children and families.
