Giving at Burgundy envisions a world of prosperous people and sustainable cities. We achieve this by investing in two critical areas:
Advancing Financial Literacy & Empowerment
Financial literacy and personal empowerment are fundamental to a prosperous life. By investing in the financial education of young people, new Canadians and people with disabilities, Giving at Burgundy aims to give people the knowledge and skills they need to chart their futures successfully.
Coupled with a distinct commitment to gender equality, Giving at Burgundy endeavors to advance its leadership role empowering women investors to increase the participation and inclusion of women in finance through university scholarships, mentoring and sponsorship. This will help ensure women have opportunity to fulfil their dreams, and that society benefits from their skill and passion.
In Canada and around the world, increasing urbanization has required us to understand how cities flourish economically, environmentally, and culturally. The challenge is monumental and crosses many disciplines including capital, governance, the environment, infrastructure and civic participation.
Giving at Burgundy is focused on initiatives that directly link to finding solutions that ensure our cities are prosperous, equitable and sustainable into the future, through collaboration, research, and the robust exchange of ideas.
