The Grossman Burn Foundation’s mission is to promote effective, sustainable partnership solutions for the comprehensive treatment, care, and support of burn survivors and their families in the United States and around the world.
GBF’s focus is on building in-country and local-level capacity through its global partnerships. Established in 2007, the GBF was created as the philanthropic arm of the Grossman Burn Centers, a pioneer in international burn treatment facilities. Founded by Dr. Peter H. Grossman (Director of the Grossman Burn Centers, Inc.), and his wife Rebecca Grossman, the GBF is headquartered in Los Angeles County and works to provide burn prevention education and self-sustainable burn treatment communities in the United States and around the world.

Senior citizens are at particularly high risk of scalds, burn injury and death from accidental fires.
Changes in vision, comprehension, and mobility that accompany aging, combined with
medication side effects and attitudinal risks, put seniors at higher risk than younger adults
of burns and scalds.
