Home: Welcome

Burning Tree Village is a neighborhood charitable organization for the 700 households closest to Burning Tree Elementary School in Bethesda, Maryland, designed to enhance our neighborly support of one another. While a chief goal of the organization is to help senior residents who want to remain in their homes as long as possible, at the same time, Burning Tree Village promotes activities that benefit all members of the neighborhood across generations. We do this through volunteer activities, educational and social programs, and partnerships with other individuals and organizations that complement our volunteer activities. By engaging all residents in these activities, Burning Tree Village helps foster a caring, supportive and friendly atmosphere that enhances the quality of life in our entire community and helps make this a wonderful neighborhood in which to live.

There are many ways to get involved and we look forward to your participation!

Catch up with neighbors most Fridays this summer at our popular Front Yard Fridays. These fun, informal gatherings are held at a different home each week, so watch your email for the location (and any weather-related notifications). Hosts are still needed for dates in September and October as we consider extending the Front Yard Friday season.

Burning Tree Village Offers Tech Coaching Program

We are recruiting volunteers to serve as tech coaches (training provided!) as well as late tech adopters who could benefit from some help with using their cell phones, home computers, and/or tablets. We're also currently in need of a volunteer to manage the program for BTV. Learn more about our tech coaching program.

Village Rides Resumes!

We have resumed offering free rides to our community members who are seniors or disabled. All drivers and riders must wear a mask at all times. Learn more about Village Rides.
