The annual concert on the square on Friday is being made possible by donations through the Glasgow-Barren County Foundation Inc., a local non-profit organization.
The organization was created more than 30 years ago.
“The main purpose of the foundation is to keep dollars within Barren County,” said Terry Bunnell, president of the foundation.
Through the foundation people can make donations toward various local causes and feel certain their money will go to benefit those local causes, such as the concert on the square, he said.
“The concert is put on 100 percent by donations from the community and it averages around $20,000 to put the concert on,” said Bunnell. “Those sponsors are the ones who make it happen. The foundation does not sell anything. We are just the agent through which the money passes.”
Aside from donating to local causes through the foundation, people can also state in their wills they wish their estates to continue to support the same local causes they gave to prior to their death, he said.
“It is truly an opportunity for you to give to the community on an ongoing basis during your lifetime and after your lifetime,” Bunnell said.
