Burlington's Corporate Social Responsibility
At Burlington, we believe that the way we do business is just as important as the results we achieve. That philosophy guides the decisions we make across all our stores, distribution centers and corporate locations. It also keeps us focused on identifying ways we can add value for our shareholders, associates, vendors, customers and the environment. We are, therefore, very excited to present our Corporate Social Responsibility report, which illustrates Burlington’s approach to managing the environmental, social and governance issues (ESG) that are important to us and our stakeholders.

AdoptAClassroom.org – Helping to fund classroom materials to support teachers and their students
For the past 4 years, Burlington has proudly partnered with AdoptAClassroom.org during the back-to-school season. AdoptAClassroom.org provides funding to teachers so that they can purchase the classroom materials they need for students to learn and succeed wherever learning takes place – virtually or in the classroom. Since 96% of American public school teachers report paying for school supplies out of their own pocket, spending $745 of their own money each year, Burlington wanted to help off-set this burden and support teachers across the country. Over the last 4 years, Burlington has collected over $7 million during its annual in store fundraising campaign. Donations to AdoptAClassroom.org benefit teachers and students in Burlington store communities nationwide, with more than 38,800 classrooms being adopted over the last 4 years.
Burlington Coat Drive
Burlington and the national non-profit organization Delivering Good, join together to keep neighbors warm through the Burlington Coat Drive. Each year during the holiday season, Burlington customers, associates, and vendors donate new and gently worn coats at their local Burlington store locations across the country. Through Delivering Good, coats are distributed locally to those most in need within each store community. To date, the coat drive has collected more than 2.3 million coats! Thanks to all those who continue to donate and help spread the gift of warmth.
Burlington Toy Drive
While Burlington locations stateside are collecting warm coats during the holiday season, its store locations in Puerto Rico are collecting new toys to benefit Fundacion Infantil Ronald McDonald, a local non-profit organization which creates, finds and supports programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children and their families living in Puerto Rico. Since the Toy Drive commenced in 2013, more than 75,000 toys have been collected and donated.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
Burlington is proud to be the #1 National Corporate Partner and Honored Friend of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). Over the 18 years, Burlington has raised more than $46 million for lifesaving research and blood cancer treatment through generous customer and associate donations. Beginning in 2020, funds raised in all Burlington store locations nationwide will not only support LLS’s mission, but also support their Children’s Initiative – helping children and their families impacted by blood cancer. Each year, Burlington honors young, local cancer survivors nationwide through unique surprise and delight celebrations. In addition, Burlington associates nationwide participate in Light the Night events within communities across the country.
UNCF - Helping students achieve their dreams of higher education
To further our strong commitment to inclusion and diversity, we partnered with UNCF to help students achieve their dreams of higher education. In our first year of partnership, we raised more than $2 million to provide scholarships to students of color in financial need to attend colleges nationwide, and support UNCF’s 37-member Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).
Natural Disaster Relief Efforts
When unfortunate natural disasters occur, Burlington responds. Whether it’s international or domestic, Burlington finds a way to help.
