The Burlington Foundation will have a new president and CEO beginning in January.

Megan Tregunno will join the foundation having held executive leadership roles in community and healthcare philanthropy for the last two decades, with a special focus on women’s health, research, and mental health.

She has led organizations and teams through periods of transformational growth and championed the missions behind some of Canada’s most iconic charitable organizations, such as Women’s College Hospital Foundation.

The Burlington Foundation is a local organization that allows individuals or organizations to pool their charitable gifts and ensure grant donations directly impact people’s lives and addresses important community needs.

“The board is immensely grateful to Colleen for her outstanding leadership of the Foundation over her 11-year tenure,” said Catherine Brady, the board chair, who made the announcement.


“Two notable accomplishments include growing assets under management from $5M to $25M and leading the $2.7M Burlington Flood Relief efforts in 2014 on behalf of the City of Burlington. The board celebrates the tremendous contributions Colleen has made to the Foundation and to the Burlington community and extends our thanks and best wishes to Colleen on her adventures ahead.”

Tregunno holds a Certified Fundraising Executive (CFRE) designation and has been celebrated for her leadership contributions to the philanthropic sector through the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy. She is a life-long Burlington resident, where she and her family currently reside.
