(hybrid work opportunity)

Since 1999, individuals, organizations and corporate donors have chosen Burlington Foundation (aka the Burlington Community Foundation) to connect their charitable gifts to thousands of community members.

As your partner in giving, the Foundation understands how important it is to know a gift of any size can make a real difference. Each and every day, we collaborate with key leaders, agencies and other organizations to ensure grant donations directly impact people’s lives and address important community needs.

The Foundation impacts many people in the community: a widowed senior rediscovers laughter and friendship at a community centre; a child from a low-income family puts on a jersey and learns how awesome it is to be part of a team; a 15-year-old struggling with mental health issues anticipates their future with newfound optimism. Meaningful ways donors can leave their mark on the community.

We currently manage over $23.4 million in assets, steward 107 charitable funds and have distributed more than $6.4 million in grants in Burlington and the surrounding area since inception. We do all this to advance the quality of life in Burlington, so that our community can be the very best in Canada.
