Ladder Up

We’ve helped more than 850,000 hard-working families reclaim $1.4 billion  —  all pro bono, no strings attached. And we’re just getting started.

Ladder Up, founded and led by Bob Burke, is our long-term charitable effort to fix the broken tax, financial aid, and investment systems for low-income families. For more than 30 years, we’ve been supporting talented, ambitious Americans who just need a little help filing a tax return, applying for financial aid, or putting together a savings plan. We partner these families with volunteer experts to get the resources they deserve and move up the economic ladder.

The same way that Burke America is committed to permanently fixing the home repair industry at a national scale, Ladder Up aims to fix America’s financial system for all and for good. We’re not going anywhere and won’t stop until the benefits of American prosperity are accessible to everyone.
