Dedicated to Supporting
Burn Survivors

Our Mission Statement


The Knapp Burn Foundation was established in 1989 by family and friends of a burn survivor injured in 1975.  Throughout the surgery and rehabilitation, they realized just how much pain and suffering not only the burn survivors endured, but that their families also experienced.  While reflecting on that time of our lives, we came to the realization that current support systems are not enough to cope with the losses suffered through burns.  Therefore, the Knapp Burn Foundation was created as a not-for-profit organization committed to:


  1. Assist burn victims and their families through the temporary and/or permanent physical, social, economical and emotional challenges.

  2. Advocate assimilating burn survivors to return to socially fulfilling and occupationally productive lives.

  3. Educating and equipping the public with burn information.


We strive to provide the support and resources to allow burn survivors to move beyond their burns and continue with their lives, and promote burn prevention and awareness.  Some of the Knapp Burn Foundation's most requested and rewarding programs are:
