Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is The Henry Barnard Memorial Fund?

The purpose of The Henry Barnard Memorial Fund (HBMF) is to help needy teachers who have served but are no longer active in the teaching profession. This private fund is exclusively charitable. Its main goal is to help teachers stay independent-with an adequate standard of living-and maintain pride in themselves and in their profession. The Fund preserves the dignity of teachers as human beings by offering financial and other assistance in a private, professional manner.  If you know a retired teacher who needs some financial assistance or if you would like to make a donation, you may visit The Henry Barnard Memorial Fund website at: www.henrybarnardfund.org for further information.
