The Vermont Community Foundation was established in 1986 as a permanent source of support for the state. They are a family of hundreds of funds and foundations created by Vermonters to serve their charitable goals. They provide the advice, investment vehicles, and back-office expertise to making your giving easy and inspiring. Together, our funds and programs provide more than $12 million a year in grants in Vermont and beyond.
Community foundations in the United States are public charities serving people who share a common interest—improving the quality of life in their area. Individuals, families, businesses, and organizations create permanent charitable funds that help their region meet the challenges of changing times. Community foundations invest and administer these funds.
