Mission

The Lindsay Ann Burke Memorial Fund is a non-profit corporation and was founded to honor the life of Lindsay Ann Burke, a 23 year old Rhode Island College graduate from North Kingstown, R.I. Lindsay was a compassionate, honest and trusting young woman who cared deeply for others. She was trying to break the cycle of violence when she was murdered. Lindsay was an education major and came from a family of educators. We believe she would want us to break the silence and work towards ending relationship violence through education. As such, this fund will support the prevention of relationship violence primarily through the education of teens, parents, educators, and the public.

2020 POSTER CONTESTS: Given the challenging times right now, we are extending the deadline for our 2020 middle and high school poster contests for RI students to May 1.  The sponsoring teacher or student may mail their posters to:  Lindsay Ann Burke Memorial Fund, P.O. Box 1748, North Kingstown, RI  02852.  Each poster must have a completed registration form!  It would be great if students can also include their phone numbers.  In order to decrease the spread of COVID 19, NO posters can be dropped off or delivered in person to or by anyone.
