As a company, Burning Man LLC, has created various organizations to help promote its values.  There’s The Black Rock Arts Foundation, which supports public art; the year round newsletter, Jack Rabbit Speaks, that keeps the Burners in the know of what is going on in the Burning community; and the Burning Man Project, a nonprofit organization that develops program initiatives in the areas of civic involvement, social enterprise, and education. Perhaps, the most telling signs of Burning Man’s evolution are the executives and companies that it attracts.
