Burlington Foundation’s Brilliant Business Circle is a collective giving experience that amplifies corporate giving and creates opportunities to engage employees in the act of giving locally.
Through the program’s collective giving circle, our corporate partners have shared in increased granting power; supported the Foundation’s mission; and have had direct involvement in determining grant recipients. And with 3 levels of corporate partnership, the program offers the opportunity for businesses of all sizes to make a difference in our local community.
Through the 2018-19 and 2019-20 years, the Brilliant Business Circle granted a total of $110,000 in gifts to 15 vital local charities.
For the 2019-20 year, 17 committed and socially-minded businesses joined forces with the Foundation to provide both vital support for our mission, as well as actively participate in powerful granting addressing vital community needs. We were excited to announce and share the collective giving with community at our People Power event in the fall of 2019.
