Below is a list of some of the ways we plan to use the money:

  • Scholarships (for college and other academic pursuits)

  • Annual youth leadership conference in Bartlesville

  • Annual Burk Hansen service award at Madison (where he attended middle school)

  • Summer mission trip scholarships for local youth

  • Playground, technology, or other needed equipment for local schools

  • Support local organizations that support youth (Boys & Girls Club, Mutual Girls Club, etc.)

  • Community improvement projects

  • Sponsorship of sports teams

We decided to partner with local youth to promote activities in these areas.  We will seek to guide them in serving others and their community; encourage them to adhere their faith; challenge them to develop themselves through setting high goals and standards, pursuing higher education, and serving in positions in their community; and encouraging them to pursue healthy recreational opportunities.

How much of the money goes toward administrative costs?


Answer: It is our goal for all funds raised to go directly to support youth and the programs to support them.  As a result, all adult and youth members of the foundation are strictly volunteer and do not receive any monetary gain for their assistance with the programs and events in which the foundation sponsors.

The foundation firmly believes that service and volunteerism provides its’ own inherent benefits.  While the foundation may provide scholarships for exemplary youth who have displayed their dedication to volunteering and service, individuals who participate and volunteer as part of the foundation seek for character building experiences and benefits which are far greater than those that can be attained through any monetary means.
