The Vermont Directory of Foundations Online can be used to find new funders fast - or to research information on your current donors or prospects. The Directory contains information on grantmakers that have a primary address in Vermont, as well as those that are not located in Vermont but have a geographic focus that includes Vermont.
This resource for Vermont grantseekers was developed by the Foundation Center in partnership with the Vermont Community Foundation.
See the directory here.
We held this Grantseeker Webinar on November 17th, 2015. Watch to learn about the grant programs available at the Community Foundation in 2016, as well as some of the other resources we provide to Vermont nonprofits. Community Foundation staff explain what we want to accomplish with our grantmaking and what makes us and our donors love your proposal.

In 2008, the Vermont Community Foundation launched the Vermont Directory of Nonprofit Consultants to help nonprofit organizations in the state find the resources they needed to be successful. Visits to the directory have steadily declined over the past few years, as people use more robust tools - like powerful search engines - to look for consultants. Nonprofits have also provided feedback that they rely heavily on word-of-mouth references.
As of December 31, 2015, we are no longer hosting the Vermont Directory of Nonprofit Consultants. There are two outstanding resources - Common Good Vermont and NonprofitNext - that provide nonprofit organizations with valuable resources and a place to be part of an online community. The Community Foundation financially supports both resources, and we encourage you learn more about them.
Thank you for your work with Vermont nonprofits.
