Supporting the Fund

Helping Students Pay for College Since 1946

Historically, the Burke Fund has been supported by contributions in the traditional forms of donations and memorials. This support comes from golf clubs, their members and various organizations, companies and individuals who believe in the value of education and the mission of the Fund. This sustained assistance has enabled the Burke Fund to provide more than $3,000,000 in financial aid to over 1,100 students since 1946.

Many demonstrate a commitment to the Burke Fundís mission through general or memorial donations, planned gifts, special fundraising events, company or foundation matching donations and Founders Society Membership.

Endowed scholarships are a thoughtful and meaningful vehicle to permanently memorialize a loved one, a special individual, an organization or a club. The Burke Fund is fortunate to be the beneficiary of a number of endowed scholarships.

Golfers by Nature Remember

Remembering is part of the spirit of the game. We remember to replace the flag, to replace divots, to repair ball marks, to rake bunkers, to call a rule on ourselves to make the game fair to all.

We remember because it makes it better for those who follow.  Supporters of the Burke Fund remember those who follow in the same way.  The Burke Fund is fortunate for the many who believe in the value of education and in golf's historic tradition of charitable support.
