ATHENS, GA (November 21, 2016) – It was on April 15, 2015, the day the storytelling community lost a legend. Some may be as talented, but the world has never seen a better storyteller than Darrell Barton. While we will forever miss the man, his principles, passions and professionalism must live on.
The Darrell Barton Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit, is dedicated to perpetuating all that Darrell believed in, accomplished and taught.
Our mission is simple: we believe in doing the right things for the right reasons. Barton made the world better with his photojournalism. The Darrell Barton Foundation will give up-and-coming photojournalists the opportunity to do the same.
Photojournalists are encouraged to apply for funding to any photojournalist educational program that provides quality instruction that’s based on Barton's Principles. Tell a compelling story - make a difference.
The Darrell Barton Foundation cannot fulfill its mission without your help. Consider making a donation in honor, in memory or on behalf of a person or event that is meaningful to you. Make a donation to continue Darrell's mission, to allow photojournalism to document history, to share important stories, to make a difference in the world.
