About this funder:




The Henrietta Lange Burk Fund was established in 1994 to support and promote quality arts, cultural, educational, health care and human services programming for underserved populations. Special consideration is given to charitable organizations that address the health concerns of older adults through either direct programming or research.

The Lange Burk Fund is a private foundation created by Mrs. Henrietta Lange Burk. Mrs. Burk created the Fund as a memorial to her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Henry G. Lange, as well as to her husband, William Burk, and herself. Mrs. Burk was particularly interested in the performing and cultural arts, age-related health problems, research and care and human services organizations, especially those connected to her Protestant background.

The majority of grants from the Lange Burk Fund are 1 year in duration.
