The Vermont Community Foundation helps Vermont-focused philanthropists,
organizations, and businesses cultivate their love of giving to the community.
We do this by helping them learn, lead, and grow through their philanthropy. The
Foundation is a Middlebury-based statewide public charity with more than 500
individual funds, each of which contributes to building healthy and vital
Vermont communities. We also offer planned giving, nonprofit endowment
management, and other services that help charitable partners achieve their
missions. We help build and manage charitable funds created by individuals,
families, groups, organizations, and institutions to improve the quality of life
in Vermont. Grants from these funds are awarded at the suggestion of our
fundholders and through competitive processes managed by the Foundation.
