The Burns & McDonnell Foundation

Giving back to our community is part of who we are. At Burns & McDonnell, it's what we want to do. Our employee-owners are committed to the communities where we live and work — to nourishing our communities to become healthy and strong. Through the work of the Burns & McDonnell Foundation, we share our passion with specific, targeted efforts. We provide financial support, but we also teach. We swim, walk and run to raise funds. We paint and plant. We create and support exciting educational programs, and we nurture young people into thinking big.

It's part of who we are as a company, and it starts at the very top. We're excited to be named the 2012 Kansas City Business Philanthropist of the Year. See the video >

The Burns & McDonnell Foundation was formed by our employee-owners — to reflect our strong belief in corporate citizenship and philanthropy. Like most foundations, we receive more requests than there are funds available, and we work diligently to determine the efforts that best reflect the interests of our employees and support the foundation’s mission.

Our giving, volunteering and grant programs are primarily directed in four strategic areas: educational outreach, environmental responsibility, human services, and arts and culture.

Educational Outreach

Educational Outreach

We share our passion about engineering and the environment with the next generation. Our educational programs spark interest in science and math — and show young minds how they can change our world.

When the world faces daunting environmental issues, it's critical we adopt more sustainable practices. On the job and off, we believe we have a responsibility to create and demonstrate real-world environmental solutions.
