Funding is now available from the Vermont Changemakers Table grant program through the Vermont Community Foundation, in collaboration with Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility. The grant round is designed by the Changemakers, an annual cohort of 20 young Vermonters seeking to drive positive change in communities across the state through relationship building and collective action.
Each grant award will provide up to $5,000 of unrestricted general operating support for nonprofit organizations led by Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Color (BIPOC), either on staff or board.
In 2023, the fund will prioritize BIPOC-led organizations, with the highest priority for organizations that:
- Have an annual operating budget under $300,000
- Primarily serve rural communities
Applications are due by Monday, April 3, 2023, by noon (12 p.m. EST). Applicants can expect to be notified in early May. Please reach out to Britney Lux at [email protected] and Molly Barfuss at [email protected] for accessibility accommodations or translation requests. At this time, applications can be translated into Spanish, French, and Nepali.

The Vermont Community Foundation was established in 1986 as an enduring source of philanthropic support for Vermont communities. A family of more than 900 funds, foundations, and supporting organizations, the Foundation makes it easy for the people who care about Vermont to find and fund the causes they love. The Community Foundation and its partners put more than $60 million annually to work in Vermont communities and beyond. The heart of its work is closing the opportunity gap—the divide that leaves too many Vermonters struggling to get ahead, no matter how hard they work. The Community Foundation envisions Vermont at its best—where everyone can build a bright, secure future. Visit vermontcf.org or call 802-388-3355 for more information.
