In 2021, the BCF's investments produced a surplus of $9,000, which has been passed along to our member-selected charities. If you're looking to learn how you can nominate your charity for supplementary donations, which charitable fields our members contributed to, or just to read the heartfelt responses of your nominees, this is the report for you. Together, we're making a difference.
TWO WAYS TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE! As a member of the BCF, you can go to the donation portal at any time to make a donation to the charity of your choice. But you also have the right to nominate a charity of your choice for additional funds directly from the foundation. Every year, we invite nominations from our members and you can do that any time before January 15, 2023 for the 2022 distribution.

The Burton Charitable Foundation, started in 1960, is a family charitable organization whose members are the descendants of Charles Luther Burton. Our engagement in Canadian community charities is a family tradition that continues to this day, five generations later.
Charles Luther Burton (1876 - 1961) called it “a sense of urgency.” We have come to know it as a clear set of principles that guide our conduct in life. These include a sense of purpose, a strong moral compass, and a profound regard for community represented by philanthropy and good works. In the five generations since C.L., our family has continued to incorporate these principles into our day-to-day lives.
To help fund good works in our local, provincial, and national communities, through a combination of members’ individual donations, and effective use of the Foundation’s other resources.
