Our Donors

Giving Thanks to Our Community

As the saying goes, it takes a village to raise a family. The evolution of our village from the 1800s through the 1900s, and into the vibrant city it is today is preserved and celebrated through the Museums of Burlington. We are proud of what our museums accomplish to maintain a sense of history while inspiring the future. Building a culture rich community would not be possible without the generosity of our family of supporters. We extend our sincere gratitude to every individual and company that supports through volunteering, advocacy and monetary donations.

Burlington Builders, our Community Pillars

Meet our Burlington Builders and learn how their unique stories have made a positive impact, helping to shape our city’s heritage.

Burlington Builders are leaders from a broad range of sectors who believe in our vision and mission. We recognize their past and on-going contributions to our city and region with a permanent exhibition at the new Joseph Brant Museum, Burlington’s Community Museum.

Transformational Donors

The Burlington Museums Foundation would like to thank and recognize some of our donors who have made significant gifts and been behind the Joseph Brant Museum transformation project from the beginning. Their commitment to this project is the reason why the new state-of-the-art Joseph Brant Museum, Burlington’s Community Museum, is standing where it is today.
