Donald A. Burns Foundation, Inc.
The Donald A. Burns Foundation, Inc. (“The Foundation”) has been formed to make charitable gifts to those organizations that nurture the lifetime social objectives of its founder. The Foundation will adhere to all rules and regulations that govern the operation of a private or family foundation as they may be modified from time to time.
Best Start Opportunity Giving
The first objective of the Foundation will be to broaden the educational choices available to elementary level school children and their parents. The Foundation will form no bias toward public or private schools in the pursuit of providing the best educational option for a particular child. Economically deprived communities and families will be the preferred beneficiaries of The Foundation’s giving.
Family Choice Opportunity Giving
The second objective of the Foundation will be to broaden the family planning options available to pregnant women [and their families] who are unable or unwilling to raise a child. Funding will be provided to those organizations that provide educational, nutritional, medical, childcare, and adoption support services to those mothers [and their families] that choose to give birth to their babies. The Foundation will fund organizations that support the birth of a child without promoting one pregnancy outcome over any other. The Foundation will be vigilant in its giving to remember that the support needs of a newborn child are ongoing.
Donald A. Burns Lifetime Giving
The third objective of The Foundation is to facilitate discretionary gifts that cover the spectrum of charitable opportunities including, but not limited to, the Arts and Humanities, Medical Services Delivery, and Palm Beach-Based Community Organizations.
