Malin and Roberta Burnham Giving $20M to BCCA

Malin Burnham

Malin and Roberta Burnham announced today (April 11) that they will donate $20 million to the Burnham Center for Community Advancement (BCCA). The gift represents the Burnham’s largest charitable donation ever to a single organization.

In a press release announcing the donation, the Burnhams said this “flagship” gift was inspired by BCCA’s “impactful start and the positive community feedback” the organization has received since its founding in 2021.

BCCA is headquartered in UCSD’s new Park & Market Center in downtown San Diego. Burnham has called the nonprofit, nonpartisan community-focused organization a “think-and-do tank.”

“Since our founding two years ago, we have proved instrumental in pushing initiatives and sparking action, such as with the renewed conversations on the fiscal and governance sustainability of Balboa Park and the designation of San Diego-Tijuana as World Design Capital 2024,” said BCCA CEO Tad Parzen.

“My work with BCCA is some of the most important I have ever done,” Malin Burnham said. “‘Community Before Self’ is more than just a motto or the title of a book I wrote, it is an ethos I live by. BCCA will carry that banner going forward to bring the community together to help solve the toughest challenges facing our region.”

“We have been honored to work alongside the Burnhams these past few years to establish and grow our organization, and we are profoundly grateful for their generosity,” Parzen said. “Through this investment, BCCA will continue to enhance the binational community and have the sustainability to get meaningful things done.”

San Diego Mayor Todd Gloria added: “Making the most of San Diego’s many assets requires us to continually strive for improvement, and the Burnham center for Community Advancement is helping to lead that dialogue on behalf of the region.”
