Working with Nonprofits

Vermont’s communities thrive with the hard work and dedication of nonprofit organizations and partners. We are proud to support these partners with nonprofit funds, planned giving partnerships, grants, and integrated capital.

Grant Programs

Our grant programs are supported through the generosity of thousands of donors. We believe that donors and nonprofits are better together and work to make Vermont communities their best.

Specifically, the Vermont Community Foundation helps nonprofits to carry out their important work by awarding grants, addressing systems-level change, creating community partnerships and educating philanthropists and donors about organizations that are most aligned with their charitable interests. In grantmaking, the Vermont Community Foundation relies on data driven, best practice-focused strategies that bring the voice of community members to the table.
