He was an Honorary Director of the Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders Association and a member of the Board of Directors of the Hebrew Home Riverdale, as well as Chairman of their Building Committee. Burt was Campaign Chairman of the UJA-Federation, New York, Co-Chairman Emeritus of the Real Estate Council of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and a Trustee and Vice Chairman of Carnegie Hall. He served as National Campaign Chairman of State of Israel Bonds and Chairman Emeritus of the Board of Directors of Development Corporation for Israel/State of Israel Bonds.
