Burg Simpson Shareholder Nick Fogel Presents the Denver Fire Fighters Charitable Foundation Awards

The Denver Fire Fighters Charitable Foundation, in partnership with the Denver Fire Department Foundation and Burg Simpson shareholder Nick Fogel, was pleased to present the annual Denver Fire Scholarship awards on Saturday, February 22nd. These organizations awarded two $1,500 scholarships to two qualifying high school seniors whose parents are active members of the Denver Fire Department.

An independent committee made up of members outside the fire service chose the winners of the two $1500 scholarship awards.

The Burg Simpson law firm and the Denver Fire Department Foundation funded one of the two inaugural scholarships to encourage member’s children to pursue higher education. It is a privilege for the Denver Fire Fighters Charitable Foundation, the Denver Fire Department Foundation, and Burg Simpson to work together to represent the interests of our Denver firefighters and their families. This scholarship program grows out of our shared interest in giving back to the community.

Congratulations to the 2020 Scholarship Winners!
