Our Community Fund is a collection of gifts donated by individuals and corporations who want to make a meaningful difference in their community. Donations large and small are pooled together and invested. The income from these investments support grants which support local registered charities, while the capital remains untouched. This means that a donation to the fund gives the Burlington Foundation great flexibility in tackling the community’s needs and priorities. It also means that your original gift will have an impact in your community today, tomorrow, and for many years to come. So it’s a brilliant way to give.
- Data from our annual Vital Signs report informs our focus for the community fund.
- Our community fund granting focus over the past few years has been on youth, mental health and poverty.
