About the Foundation

The Andrew Burgin Charitable Trust was established under a trust agreement by Andrew Burgin on May 5, 2016. Andrew “Drew” Burgin, a resident of Anniston, Alabama, was a Vietnam War veteran. He lived in Atlanta for more than 30 years working in banking. Mr. Burgin was a gifted master gardener who was involved in the planning and development of the Atlanta Botanical Gardens in the 1970s.

The Andrew Burgin Charitable Trust was created exclusively for support of religious, charitable, educational and scientific organizations.
