Burgundy Legacy Foundation

The Burgundy Legacy Foundation inspires a better world by advancing philanthropy and supporting the generosity of Burgundy employees, clients and company.

The Burgundy Legacy Foundation was established in 2020 to serve as a focused philanthropic platform for, and seeded with a seed gift from its sole member, Burgundy Asset Management.

Through the Burgundy Legacy Foundation, our employees access matching contributions in support of their charitable priorities, and the company proactively invests in critical community priorities. 

Giving at Burgundy Community Investment

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.

Sustainable Cities

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.

The foundation proactively seeks out national charitable partners working in our priority granting areas, and the board of directors reviews and considers relevant opportunities on a quarterly basis. Note that we are not currently accepting applications or requests for funding.
