Empower youth through service, faith, personal development, and recreational opportunities.
The PlayForBurk Foundation was created as a 501c3 entity to carry on the legacy of Burk Hansen after he passed away at 13 in an accident in 2015.
Even at his young age, Burk had a solid set of values he used to guide his life. The founders have a passion for helping youth develop and succeed, and it was decided to create a foundation to carry on Burk’s memory, and also partner with youth to promote values that will help them become productive citizens.
The mission statement for the foundation reflects the four areas of life most important to Burk.
We will seek out ways to support the youth of our community and others where we have lived.
We will work with established organizations to support the great work they are already doing, as well as create new opportunities.
We will not limit ourselves to the activities below and will constantly seek other ways to support the development of the local youth.p
