Opportunity Fund

In late 2017, the Community Foundation began to align its philanthropic resources to close the opportunity gap and give more Vermonters more opportunities for success.

The work focuses on four areas: 

  • Early Care & Learning
  • Support for Youth & Families 
  • College & Career Training 
  • Community & Economic Vitality

Our approach includes deep community engagement and partnership on the local level, grants, and place-based investments. 

A contribution to the Opportunity Fund will provide resources for the Foundation's opportunity gap grantmaking and investments, along with support for related strategic projects. You may also donate directly to a specific Opportunity Gap issue fund.
