About


Today, we come together to celebrate what makes us all Team Burke.
As the world around us has shifted in challenging ways, the extraordinary members of Team Burke - near and far - have shown that nothing can stop us from standing together to help our students thrive. We are so grateful for our vibrant community of students, educators, parents, alumni, grandparents, and friends who have persevered through much and have unwaveringly stood in support of one another through even more than we could have imagined over the last two years. Together, we are resilient. Together, we have forged forward with creativity, passion, and purpose. Together, we are compassionate. We care deeply about one another, and we are advocates for each other and the world around us. Together we build strong foundations for the next generation of changemakers that we know our world needs. 

Together, we are all Team Burke!

Our Mission: 

Reach 200 donors in 24 hours, and 

provide critical support to the Annual Fund.
As Team Burke, we have a collective mission to support the Annual Fund each year, which provides the flexible and immediate support to sustain the experiences that define Burke. These dollars are always important, but in this constantly evolving climate, they are critical. The Annual Fund has been called upon to support the increased financial aid needs of current families, emerging needs for technology, health and safety measures, social-emotional health programing, and professional development.  

We are calling on Team Burke to stand together in supporting the school, our phenomenal students, and our dedicated faculty and staff with a gift to the Annual Fund today!

Hooray for Team Burke! 

Thanks to you, we unlocked the first challenge before Giving Day even officially kicked off! Before the day had even begun, we had crossed the 25 donor mark, so EBPA provided donuts and coffee for faculty and staff this morning!
