Our Grantmaking


The mission of the Vermont Women’s Fund is to help all Vermont women and girls to rise and thrive. Since our founding, we have granted over $2 million toward that mission. For us, it’s becoming increasingly clear: women’s economic security—the ability of women to support themselves and their families—is a critical part of what we mean by “rise and thrive.” It’s critical for individual women as well as for the health and vitality of Vermont communities.

In an effort to achieve a deeper and more strategic impact, the Vermont Women’s Fund will focus its 2018 grantmaking on an area highlighted by the research of our primary initiative, Change The Story, namely women and girls on the pathway to viable careers. We see significant funding gaps in this area and believe the Vermont Women’s Fund and its charitable capital is particularly positioned to make a difference on this issue.
