The Bargers’ primary goals for the foundation include supporting charitable
and educational purposes in Brule and Lyman Counties, though other parts of
South Dakota may also be considered by the Board of Directors depending on need.
Established as directed by the last will and testament of the late Edith Barger, the
foundation will use its income to support charitable causes in the Chamberlain area,
including a number of specific annual gifts previously named by the late Mrs. Barger.
The entity will operate as a Private Foundation and has received non-profit 501(c)3 status
from the Internal Revenue Service.
