Charitable/Civic

  • I founded Barron Charitable Foundation and am the sole grantor to the foundation, which has allowed it to in turn make many grants each year to different charitable causes.

  • Our world currently relies heavily on coal, oil, nuclear, and natural gas for its energy. They are non-renewable, and they will eventually become too expensive or too environmentally damaging. At GameChange, we are changing the world by making solar energy affordable.

  • I am collaborating with Harvard SEAS (School of Engineering and Applied Sciences) to support their research in technology in service to the world, the nation, and our community. SEAS bridges disciplines, both within engineering and the applied sciences and beyond, to prepare broadly trained leaders, to advance foundational science, and to achieve translational impact.

    Made a gift to support Harvard Wyss with their important research for therapeutics to improve the lives of humans. The Wyss Institute at Harvard University is a research and development engine for disruptive innovation powered by bioinspired technologies with visionary people at its heart.

    The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of our founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay.
