In addition, the fund encourages women to think of themselves as philanthropists, helping them to recognize that they can make a real difference in their communities through charitable giving.

The Vermont Women's Fund provides an opportunity to make change possible for Vermont women and girls, and to expand and strengthen their roles in society.

No gifts to The Vermont Community Foundation shall directly or indirectly subject the Vermont Community Foundation to a prohibited material restriction as defined by federal law. All gifts are subject to a federally required amendment or variance power that permits the Vermont Community Foundation to vary from the terms and conditions of agreements with donors relative to the purpose, investment, and management of its funds subject to the procedural requirements of Vermont state law. In practice, the Foundation uses this variance power rarely and only if the needs of the community have shifted. The Foundation will be in communication with donors should such a shift occur.
