The mission of the High Meadows Fund, a supporting organization of the Vermont Community Foundation, is to promote vibrant communities and a healthy natural environment while encouraging long-term economic vitality in Vermont.
|High Meadows Fund Board of Directors and Staff
The changing climate is already impacting Vermont's communities and working landscape. It is urgent that Vermonters adapt to those changes while also lowering their contribution to climate change. High Meadows helps Vermonters mitigate that change and adapt to its consequences.
The High Meadows Fund supports leadership and innovation in three overlapping areas of focus:
Land Use: Encouraging working farms and forests, compact settlements, and watershed land use that protects communities, soil, and water quality.
- Energy: Improving buildings and transportation systems in order to lower fossil fuel use.
- Sustainable Agriculture: Promoting healthy soil and expanding agricultural markets.
