To review our FAQs:
On March 31, we launched our Pandemic Response Fund with financial resources brought forward by the Foundation and a generous $25,000 gift from Pioneer Energy, for a commitment of $100,000. On April 19, the Paletta family announced a major gift commitment to our Pandemic Response Fund of $250,000. Subsequently, through a number of generous gifts from fundholders and donors, we added additional funds for a balance of over $453,000 (balance before grants distributed). These funds have been supporting community-based response efforts and today, as we’ve been learning more about the impact on our community, we’re further supporting the efforts of our charitable partners so they can continue with their important mission-based work.
Our heartfelt thanks to several local donors as well as the following Burlington Foundation fundholders for their generous gifts to our response fund: The Paletta Family, Pioneer Energy, Randy & Denise Reeve Family Fund, Milne Family Foundation Fund, Pieczonka Family Foundation Fund, Dalton Timmis Group Fund, LKH Spirit Fund, BDO Burlington Community Fund, and the Ralph and Susan Sgro Family Fund.
