In 2010, BLB&B Advisors, LLC founder, Franklin A. Burke and his wife Elizabeth, established the Cedarcrest Charitable Foundation. Now known as BLBB Charitable, it was a natural outgrowth of their ongoing focus on serving the community. From the beginning, the Foundation reflected the Burke’s lifelong commitment to improving the lives of others and supporting BLBB employees’ community efforts.
Frank’s BLBB partners joined him on the Board of Directors. When Frank passed away in 2018, the Directors expanded the Foundation’s grants and employee giving/volunteerism programs. The Board is blessed to have Frank’s family involved through a Family Council. Today, BLBB Charitable carries on the Burke’s – and BLBB’s – legacy: when given the skills and opportunities, people are more capable than they think to push themselves forward and succeed.
