As a nonprofit institution, Burke relies on the generosity of donors, volunteers, foundations and corporations to help fund the work of The Burke Rehabilitation Hospital and Burke Medical Research Institute. As is the case with many non-profit organizations, the fundraising arm of the organization is a foundation. At Burke, our fundraising activities are conducted through the Winifred Masterson Burke Foundation. This is the foundation under which Burke was opened in 1915. Making a contribution to the foundation helps ensure that Burke can continue to provide needed programs, services and research in the area of rehabilitation medicine.
All gifts to Burke are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Unrestricted gifts of cash will be directed to Burke’s Annual Fund and are used for the greatest needs within the Hospital and Research Institute. Please know that your gift is truly appreciated by all of us at Burke and will allow us to continue our rich tradition of helping people heal. To restrict your gift to a special interest, please visit our Areas of Need section of this website.
For benefactors who make significant contributions, specific areas of our campus may be dedicated in their name. The dedication could be in the names of individuals, corporations and foundations. Gifts of this magnitude enrich Burke with the recognition of those who support our mission and will inspire future generations to become philanthropic partners. For guidelines on recognition values and how to give, please check the Giving Opportunities page.
Your donation can make a difference throughout the year by joining Burke’s Monthly Giving Program.
Did you know that Burke Rehabilitation Hospital was founded due to the generosity of one man -- John Masterson Burke?
Through his endowment, 60 acres were purchased in White Plains, New York and the hospital designed and constructed by the prominent architectural firm McKim, Mead & White. Since its opening in 1915, the hospital has relied on donations from the public for its continued operation.
Please consider making a donation to support the next 100 years of Rehabilitation services at Burke.
