From Lawson’s Finest –
The Sunshine Fund is the heart of the Lawson’s Finest Social Impact Program to assist local organizations that support the people and environment of the Mad River Valley, Washington County and the state of Vermont.
The Sunshine Fund application is currently open for consideration of the 2024 recipient calendar.
We select local tax-exempt organizations to be recognized with a Sunshine Award. Each Sunshine Awardee becomes the partner “On Tap” in the taproom for a period of time during the year and receives 100% of donations received to the Sunshine Fund during that period.
For Sunshine Awards, priority is given to Mad River Valley, Washington County and Vermont non-profit organizations that focus on:
- healthy communities
- food and economic security
- natural resource protection
- sustainable recreation in our beloved Green Mountains
Please note we do not fund individuals, scholarships, higher educational institutions, religious organizations, labor or fraternal groups or organizations that discriminate in any way on the basis of race, religion, gender, age, national origin, disability or sexual orientation.
