Jim Burke Education Foundation

Ghost Party ‘20

Donate to our Ghost Party!

With Halloween coming ghosts are the theme. Your donation is appreciated, but no one will be seen!

Thank you for your donation! It will be used to support our Dream Builder leadership program including student community projects and college scholarships.

SUPPORT A TEAM

Each Ford Dream Builder team is given a starting budget of $250 by the Jim Burke Education Foundation. Unless the students receive in-kind donations, their entire community project must stay within this amount.

Thank you Bakersfield West Rotary for your generosity!
In 2019-2020, the four Ford Dream Builder teams each received an extra $500 from Bakersfield West Rotary – Stroope Family Foundation to support their civic projects focusing on student literacy, voting, substance abuse, and homelessness.





Recognize and Honor Someone Special

Make a donation to the Jim Burke Education Foundation in celebration of a birthday, special event, or memorial. All funds will be used to support student scholarships.

A formal letter will be sent to the recipient or a family member to inform them of the charitable donation (amount not specified) that you made in their honor. You will also receive a confirmation of your contribution for tax purposes.

Thank you for supporting the Foundation with your charitable giving. Last year over $20,000 was received in Memorial donations.
