Dear Members and Friends,

Saint Andrew's Society is pleased to announce a new opportunity for NY/NJ/CT nonprofits to obtain grants from the recently formed SASNY Barker Fund.  This fund, formed through the generous posthumous contribution of Society member, Charles S.P. Barker, will provide grants to organizations that benefit communities or populations in need, especially the elderly and those of Scottish descent.

The Society asks that you help promote its new endeavor by sharing this announcement with any organizations that may have an interest in applying for a grant from the Barker Fund.  You may access the application guidelines and materials via the links below.  On behalf of the Almoner's Committee, President Halket and the entire membership I thank you for your generous support of the Society's ever growing mission of Charity, Fellowship and Scholarship.

Yours, aye,

Ian McKechnie, Almoner

Barker Fund Grant Application 

 

The Barker Fund in Memory of Charles S.P. Barker (1930-2000)

The Saint Andrew's Society of the State of New York established the Charles Barker Grant in January 2014.  Mr. Barker was born in NYC on January 12, 1930 and became a member of the society on July 25, 1959.  He attended Harvard College in 1951 and then went on to study at Harvard Law School graduating in 1958.  He was also a Lieutenant Commander in the United States Navy reserve and served four years of active duty.  Mr. Barker started his law career as an associate with Cadwalader, Wickersham, & Taft and retired in 1986 as a partner at Reavis and McGrath (currently Fulbright and Jaworski).  Upon Mr. Barker's passing on May 6, 2000, a sizeable bequest was left to the Society to benefit communities or populations in need, especially the elderly and those of Scottish descent.  It is with Mr. Barker’s great generosity that the Society now has a new platform to reach and assist those in need.
