This Foundation was created by Leo and Fern Barceloux for the purpose of funding religious, charitable, scientific, literary, and educational organizations benefiting people in and around the community of Orland, California.  Our Foundation strives to respond to the needs of all eligible non-profit organizations under the guiding principles established by Leo and Fern Barceloux.  Distributions from the Foundation are made only to charitable organizations as described in section 170(c) of the Internal Revenue Code and not to individuals. Each year the Barceloux-Tibessart Advisory Committee decides how to distribute the available funds.
