The Monique Burr Foundation for Children (MBF) is a nonprofit organization started by Edward E. Burr in 1997 on the one-year anniversary of the death of Monique Burr, his late wife, to continue her legacy of child protection and child advocacy. This year, MBF is celebrating its 20th anniversary, and although our strategies may have changed over the years, our core mission has remained the same – protecting children through prevention education.

Research shows that 95% of abuse is preventable through education, which is why we created our prevention education programs. Our elementary school, middle school, and after school programs educate and empower students and all relevant adults with information and strategies to prevent, recognize, and respond appropriately to bullying, cyberbullying, all types of child abuse, digital abuse, and other digital dangers.

logoTo date, MBF has trained over 2,600 facilitators who have implemented our prevention education programs with almost two million students in schools throughout Florida and the United States.
