Our history shows us that as a community Burlington has always pulled together to get through good times and bad. As we work together to protect our community during the current crisis, we are grateful for the support that created our magnificent new Joseph Brant Museum.

Reflecting on the times that we are in, our thanks go to those who help us get here, and for the support we have received from our community.

We look forward to getting together with you in the not-too-distant future to celebrate our rich history with an even stronger sense of pride based on how we have come together as a community to stop the spread of Covid-19.

And while the expansion of Joseph Brant Museum has been completed, we’re still working hard to meet our community commitment.

“Community support has been tremendous, and we are now just $400,000 short of reaching our $2.5-million commitment to the museum expansion,” says Cheryl Jorritsma, Development Officer for the Burlington Museums Foundation, noting that this is the Foundation’s top priority.

Cheryl says the Foundation recognizes the landscape has shifted and times are uncertain. “You can still support the Museum at this time by sharing posts to help build profile around this new facility,” she noted, adding the Museums of Burlington is alive on Twitter and Facebook using the handle @MuseumsBurlON where you will find great content and interesting reads.

“If you are in a position to give we have many opportunities to do so. The Burlington Museums Foundation is still in need of community support to meet our fundraising goal.”
