Our Purpose

Improving life potential for children and families through innovative education partners.

The mission of the Donegan Burns Foundation is to provide grants for the literacy and after-school programs as well as scholarships for deserving youth. Over the last six years the foundation has awarded grants to elementary schools to meet the needs of students with learning differences. The foundation has also provided program funding for Boys and Girls clubs.

Our current priorities include:

  • Technology grants to be used for student assessment
  • Student testing and intervention training grants for teachers
  • After-school programs that support literacy efforts
  • Student Scholarships

Donegan Burns provides on average eight grants per year of approximately $15,000 each.  To learn more, please read about our grant focus.
