The Bahl Foundation is dedicated to advancing the well being of children around the world through education, health, faith and the arts.
A few of our projects are highlighted below.
The Bahl Family Auditorium:
The Paradise Theater in Faribault, MN, has become a magnet for theatrical artists.
The Bahl Foundation is a proud partner and has been instrumental in providing a high-quality yet intimate space for a wide variety of events including plays, concerts and speaking engagements.
With a maximum seating capacity of 375 patrons - and the ability to add a thrust stage or convert the space to accommodate a dance floor - The Bahl Family Auditorium is truly a space where the arts can flourish.
Find out more information at the official web page for The Bahl Family Auditorium:
While it is a play on words, we have taken our commitment to the physical well being of children to a new level with our support for the Faribault Soccer Complex.
Some have called it "the culmination of a dream" and "great for the community and its youth" - and we agree wholeheartedly. Since its inception, this project was a logical fit with our mission.

We are honored to have our family name as a part of this fantastic facility!
Faribault High School 2018 Scholarship Presentation:
Congratulations to Morgan West, recipient of the 2018 Bahl Foundation scholarship!
Penny Bailey presented the award to Morgan on behalf of the Foundation at Faribault High School on May 23.
Faribault Rotary Club Programs:
The Bahl Foundation’s support of the Faribault Rotary Club facilitates a number of programs that benefit the youth within the community.
STRIVE - is a program that was started in 1997 and is intended to help students raise their GPAs and earn scholarship dollars for college. Students also learn valuable lessons in time management, financial management, goal setting, scholarship opportunities and the financial aid process, interview skills, test taking skills, what to expect in college and keys to success.
This year’s STRIVE program scholarship recipients are Katra Abdullahi (not pictured), Jason Donkers (top left) and Hannah Plunkett (bottom left)- pictured here with Marian Bahl, representing The Bahl Foundation, and Troy Dunn, president of the Faribault Rotary Club. Congratulations, Katra, Jason and Hannah!
STAY - is a peer-to-peer tutoring program that provided nearly 100 trained tutors from grades nine to twelve last year - assisting students in all subjects covered in the high school.
Respect Retreat - The Respect Retreat is something the Faribault Rotary Club sponsors on an annual basis. The Respect Retreat is a one-day, off-campus retreat for all ninth graders in the school system, and is facilitated by Youth Frontiers.
Although it is a one-day event, the effects of the retreat have a life-long impact on our students.
