Partnerships

At Burke, we thrive on a culture of partnership and are committed to working with companies and organizations that “Joined the Movement” and share our desire to improve the lives of children on and off the playground.

 

 

Bringing Play to Children

Burke is a KaBOOM! Preferred Vendor and proud to partner with this national non-profit dedicated to bringing active and balanced play into the lives of all kids.

Boys and Girls Club of Fond du Lac is dedicated to empowering youth to reach their full potential. They offer a variety of programs and activities that positively change the lives and futures of children 6-18. Burke is proud to partner with a group that encourages physical emotional and social growth in our community.

The US Play Coalition is a partnership to promote the value of play throughout life.  We are an international network of individuals and organizations that recognize play as a valuable and necessary part of a healthy and productive life. Our membership is diverse – including educators, parents, physicians, health scientists, park and recreation professionals, psychologists, landscape architects and many more. Membership is free, and simply requires a declaration of shared commitment to the value of play.


Purchasing Cooperatives

Federal parks, child development programs, military bases and other agencies are a major priority for Burke, and agencies can purchase Burke playgrounds through Premier Playgrounds, the company's GSA contract (GS-07F-0081M ), for installation virtually anywhere in the world.

Purchasing Burke playground equipment through HGACBuy gives your agency access to volume purchasing agreements and discounts, and there's no need to incur the time and expense of writing specs, issuing RFPs, advertising and evaluating bids. This can shorten your procurement cycle by months, while ensuring compliance with competitive bidding requirements.

Governmental entities join the National Purchasing Cooperative to access BuyBoard and take advantage of the streamlined purchasing process that complies with procurement laws of each participating state.

National IPA is redefining the future of cooperative purchasing. The cooperative purchasing organization is dedicated to serving public agencies and educational institutions nationwide. All cooperative agreements have been competitively solicited and publicly awarded by a public agency/governmental entity. For more information please visit www.nationalipa.org.

Burke is partnered with School Specialty, a national education company that provide innovative products, programs and services to help schools and educators engage and inspire students of all ages and abilities.

Burke is proud to collaborate with GW School Supply and their longstanding and reliable experience in the school supply industry. Burke and GW School Supply share a passion for exceptional quality products to meet every playground need, including custom designed creations.

Burke is partnered with American Pool Enterprises Inc., America’s leader in Pool Construction, Maintenance, Repair and Renovation, Lifeguarding and Recreational Facility Management.
