Steve Barbarich Charity Efforts

International Philanthropist




It’s difficult for most of us to comprehend the amount of pain and suffering local communities go through when a disaster hits their home. Little donations, if contributed by many can trigger the “snowball effect” and build into funds large enough to make an impact in order to help bring victims of natural or man-made disasters back to their feet as well as rebuild their communities. Steve Barbarich vows to use his businesses profits to assist in these charity efforts and bring many people the help they need.

The Vision

To bring timely relief to local communities devastated by hurricanes, flooding, fire, earthquakes and other civil conflicts such as terrorist attacks and war. With the goal in mind to help out as many people as possible most effectively, Steve Barbarich will work in conjunction with other local charities to ensure funds are spent in the most efficient and appropriate manner, in which the majority of the community believes is suitable.


  • Equality – give opportunity support to all people without considering race, age gender, sexual orientation, location, religion
  • Uninfluenced by any religious or political party affiliation
  • Accountability for charity funding decision making
