High Meadows Fund

Please note: The High Meadows Fund has formally dissolved as of December 31, 2021.

Since it was established in 2004, the High Meadows Fund has promoted vibrant communities and a healthy natural environment while encouraging long term economic vitality in Vermont. After over 16 years of pursuing this vital mission, HMF has decided to pass the torch of its important work to the Vermont Community Foundation. 

For more information, please see our blog post about this new chapter. 

From its inception through December 2021, and including transitional grants committed for 2022, the High Meadows Fund has committed $20.7 million to promoting vibrant communities and a healthy natural environment in Vermont. HMF has supported Vermont-focused projects in land use, farm and forest enterprises, and clean energy, with an increasing focus on environmental justice. It has also supported leadership and innovation in these core areas by funding research, convenings, and direct engagement, and investing for mission impact.

We thank Vermont communities and nonprofit organizations for your effective work and for all we have learned from you over HMF's long history as we have worked to grow vibrant communities, nurture healthy ecosystems, and champion economic vitality in Vermont. We are confident that this next step in our history is one that will honor that important and pressing mission.
