About Giving in Vermont
Philanthropy plays a unique and essential role in Vermont and is at the center of our work here at the Vermont Community Foundation. It can be difficult for many people to think of themselves as philanthropists, but giving begins with the individual who cares enough to act. This report presents data on the levels and value of charitable giving in our state, as well as the challenges and opportunities for growing the gifts that nurture our communities and our lives.
