BYP Community Events
Let's face it, YPs are not in any position to write big checks to charity. We're happy if we can pay the rent, our student loans and have enough left over to buy a drink after work. So Burlington Young Professionals makes philanthropy simple. We've tailored our summer events to benefit local charities. From golf to kickball and more, these are fun, outdoor events and a percentage of the proceeds goes to local charities in alignment with BYP's mission. To date, we've been able to give back over $2,000 a year to deserving causes and organizations within our community. >> Be a part of the Change!
