MISSION

 

At the heart of the Burkett Family Foundation is a deep commitment to advancing social change and creating an enduring American legacy. To this end, we make grants to 501(c)(3) public charities that promote inclusion, diversity, self-sufficiency, hard work and entrepreneurship in Denver, Colorado and Front Range communities.

The Burkett Family Foundation makes philanthropic investments that contribute to the quality of life in Denver and its surrounding communities. The Foundation strives to maintain a long-term perspective and focus on both the challenges and opportunities that will have the greatest impact over time.

The legacy of the Burkett family in Denver is shaped by certain core values: Christ is King, all people have value, family is important, self-reliance is essential, hard-work is expected, results are rewarded and an entrepreneurial spirit can change the world. The Burkett Family Foundation will continue to embrace these values and reflect the following attributes:

HOW WE WORK

The Foundation expanded its donor directed program funding in 2012. The Foundation combines grant making with Donor Directed Program Funding (DDPF) and Mission-Related Portfolio Investments (MRPI) within its investment portfolio as vehicles for increasing its near-term impact. The MRPI include various forms of low-interest micro-loans and recyclable investments designed to provide less than market returns on capital that can be reinvested. DDPF is intended to specifically measure program success and community impact.
