Charles & Margery Barancik Foundation

The Charles & Margery Barancik family has long believed in the power of philanthropy to shape our world and enrich the lives of all people. It was the expression of this belief that led them in 2014 to establish the Charles & Margery Barancik Foundation—a private, family foundation located in Sarasota, Florida. The Barancik Foundation creates initiatives and awards grants in Sarasota and beyond in the areas of arts and humanities, education and science, humanitarian causes, medical research, and the environment.

FPI’s research was funded in part by the Annie E. Casey Foundation. We thank them for their support but acknowledge that the findings and conclusions presented in our reports are those of the author(s) alone and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the Foundation.

The Institute also seeks to build strong partnerships within the State of Florida, with Legislators, the media and grassroots groups throughout the state that work day in and day out advocating for the interests of low and moderate income Floridians on issues impacting their prosperity and financial security.
