Giving through endowments that have a lasting effect on your community.
Supporting Community Through Our Annual Granting Program
Burlington Foundation continues to closely monitor the ongoing needs in our community. We know the demands that the Covid-19 pandemic has placed on those in need in our community, as well as the charities who serve them, continues to grow. To provide further support, we are pleased to launch our 2021 Community Fund Granting Program. This year, our program will provide for Grow Grants only in areas of great need as well as those specifically related to our field of interest funds.
Supporting Community Through COVID-19
Burlington Foundation continues to closely follow the impact of Covid-19 on our community. We know the demands that this unprecedented pandemic has placed on those in need in our community as well as the charities who serve them. In support, thanks to the generosity of our donors, March 31st, we established the Burlington Foundation Pandemic Response Fund for charities serving the Burlington community. Additionally, Burlington Foundation was pleased to be a participating community foundation in the Government of Canada’s Emergency Community Support Fund (ECSF), delivering funding at the local level to charities serving our vulnerable populations.
To date, we are pleased to say thru our Pandemic Response Fund & the federal ECSF, Burlington Foundation has granted $783,540 to 65 local charities since the pandemic began impacting our community. Working together, we are stronger!
