Our Core Giving Areas
Clean energy and climate change
Vermont has become a leader in replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy – yet there’s much more still to do.
Nonprofits have spurred real action on cleaning up Lake Champlain, protecting Vermont’s rivers, streams and wetlands, and removing chemicals from drinking water.
Forest health and biodiversity
Protecting our woodlands is essential — for climate-change resilience and for the well-being and diversity of our wildlife, plant life and micro-communities.
Conservation and sustainable
Protecting old-growth forests and backcountry lands — with networked trails, huts and community forests — strengthens human and ecosystem health while boosting the rural economy.
Securing healthy food systems
Building Vermont’s capacity to produce safe, healthy food, and expanding everyone’s access to it, nourishes the well-being of our farms, our families and our communities.
From the grass roots all the way up, the need to protect and strengthen our democratic systems has never been greater than it is today.
Advancing knowledge about the natural world — and Lake Champlain in particular — has long been a foundation priority.
