We make it easy to give now and into the future
We provide flexible and simple ways for individuals, corporations and organizations to set up an endowment fund. Our assets include individual funds, large and small, created by many people and corporations. These are pooled together and permanently invested, generating a source of grants to respond to the changing needs of Burlington.
As we build and invest permanent endowments, we help our donors by understanding their charitable goals and connecting them with personally meaningful local causes. We keep our donors updated with the most current information about vital and changing community needs.
We make giving easy and effective. You can contribute cash, stocks, property and other assets. Donors may establish a fund in their own name or in the name of a loved one.
The Burlington Community Fund grants to the pressing needs in Burlington, with a current focus on poverty, youth and mental health. This unrestricted endowed fund responds to grant applications received from local charitable organizations. Grant decisions are made by our Grants Council and Board.
