The Arapahoe Community College Foundation is proud to announce that it has received a $100,000 endowment from the Nathan B. and Florence R. Burt Foundation to fund scholarships for students enrolled in ACC’s Business Entrepreneurship program.
“We are most grateful to The Burt Foundation,” said Courtney Loehfelm, Executive Director of the ACC Foundation. “Current and future students will benefit tremendously from this generous gift. Our most sincere thanks to the Board of Directors at The Burt Foundation.”
The ACC Foundation provides instrumental support for the College’s students and Business Entrepreneurship program, making a direct impact on the economic growth of our community through the development of those in our educated workforce seeking to establish their own businesses.
The Burt Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, was established in 1984 by the late Nathan B. and Florence R. Burt, founders of the formerly-known Burt Chevrolet, and other auto-retailing businesses in Arapahoe County. The Burt Foundation provides grants to organizations dealing with and affecting the needs of children and indigent senior citizens, primarily in, but not limited to, the Denver metropolitan area.
“This Entrepreneurial Scholarship is dedicated to the memory of Mr. Burt and to promoting entrepreneurial studies at Arapahoe Community College,” said Harry L. Arkin, President and Chairman of the Board of The Burt Foundation, Inc.
