Where young women become global leaders

Mission Statement


"Your example, more than words, will be an eloquent lesson to the world."

    -- St. Madeleine Sophie Barat

We, the Barat Foundation, are a philanthropic organization committed to implementing lasting changes within the community to benefit children. As the foundress of the Society of the Sacred Heart, Saint Madeleine Sophie Barat devoted her life to the education and development of children. Being students of Sacred Heart Greenwich, we are educated to “a social awareness that impels to action.” Continuing in the tradition of Madeleine Sophie Barat, we are dedicated to improving lives through not only financial support, but also personal initiatives. We are committed to refining, expanding and diversifying the Barat Foundation by monitoring the impact and the progress of the various programs, while educating ourselves as women in philanthropy.
