Organization raises money for local schools

Mission:Kevin McGrath, Burger Time Foundation President

The Burger Time Foundation is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization based in Las Cruces, New Mexico. It was created in 1993 to raise funds to support Las Cruces, Mayfield and Oñate high school football in Las Cruces through the annual Burger Time Golf Tournament.

When the initial Foundation endowment was fully funded in 2007, efforts were expanded to provide similar support to any and all high school booster clubs or extra-curricular activities that wanted to participate including football and all programs at Centennial High School.

Since the Burger Time tournament’s inception 22 years ago, 21 teams from a Las Cruces high school have played in 19 New Mexico high school football state championships games and won 14 state championship titles.

The tournament is widely considered to be the biggest and most successful fundraiser of its kind in America.
