Funding is now available from the Vermont Women’s Fund at the Vermont Community Foundation for nonprofits that support economic security and provide career opportunities and programs that drive change for Vermont women and girls.

The competitive grant program will award grants of up to $15,000 for proposals that:

  • Make pathways to economic well-being more visible, accessible, and affordable for all women and girls
  • Invest in the economic security and career prospects of women, especially those earning less than a living wage
  • Advance strategies that address systemic barriers to economic well-being and thriving in Vermont; and/or
  • Enhance the capacity of the organization to achieve its mission and stated values

In 2023, the Vermont Women’s Fund distributed $412,135 to 36 Vermont organizations. Those grantees reflect the fund’s mission to advance gender equity and justice. To view the list of 2023 grant recipients, visit

The Vermont Women’s Fund, a component fund of the Vermont Community Foundation, was established in 1994 as an enduring resource for our state’s women and girls. The fund remains the largest philanthropic resource dedicated exclusively to this mission. A council of people from around Vermont advises the fund and participates in its grantmaking, fundraising, and leadership work.

Nonprofits may apply online at any time. Applications will be accepted through March 19, 2024, at 5 p.m. Visit to learn more about the Vermont Women’s Fund, its mission, and grantmaking.
