Burlington Community Scholarship Foundation
The Burlington Community Scholarship Foundation was started in 1988 and provides scholarship opportunities for residents in the town.
The Foundation is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization administered by a Board of Directors consisting of non-salaried volunteers. Established by virtue of a vote of town meeting to accept a piece of state legislation allowing it to affix a tax check-off box on tax bills enabling residents to contribute to the endowment fund. Besides being a Town organization, it is also a Dollars for Scholars chapter of Scholarship America, named by Smart Money as one of the top ten non-profit organizations in the country for efficiency of operation. The BCSF oversees the Adopt-A-Class program.
What is the present status of the Foundation?
The endowment fund has reached $1.28 M as of December 31, 2012 and have awarded scholarships to 806 students and 91 adults in the community.
