provide health-related services to the community.
Recipients of past grants include the Burbank Center for the Retarded,
Boys & Girls Clubs of Burbank and the Burbank Family YMCA.
"Response from the organizations has been positive. We feel that this
is a way of helping nonprofit organizations better serve the community,"
said Robert Jensen, Burbank accountant and consultant to the foundation.
When the former Burbank Community Hospital, which had been existence
in Burbank since 1907, closed the foundation continued to assist Burbank
organizations, Jensen said.
In 1997, the foundation changed its name from the Burbank Community
Hospital Foundation to the Burbank Health Care Foundation since the
hospital no longer existed in the city, he said.
To be eligible for the grant, Burbank nonprofit organizations must
