Granting through the wishes of fundholders
Giving brilliantly means helping our fundholders grant their wishes annually based on their fund’s purpose.
If you have a funding need that may fit with a fund purpose, please contact us to discuss.
Granting through our community fund
Our Community Fund Granting Program holds an annual call for grants in the fall. See below for more information. Pressing needs in the community are identified through our Vital Signs reports.
Burlington Foundation Community Fund Granting Overview
Burlington Foundation’s annual Community Fund Granting Program addresses the highest priority needs, as outlined in our Vital Signs reports, as well as several field of interest focus areas. Building on learnings from last year, we will continue with our Two-Category Community Fund Granting Program. This year to enhance the larger grant program as well as celebrate Canada’s sesquicentennial anniversary, we will partner with the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th.
Our 2016-17 Community Fund Program provided seed grants of $2,000 or less, and larger grants of approximately $15,000. The grant program application period is now closed.
Next Call for Grants
Opens in September 2017
