Funding Available for South Lake Champlain Projects through the Vermont Community Foundation

Grants are now available to support projects through the South Lake Champlain Fund of the Vermont Community Foundation.

The South Lake Champlain Fund supports projects focused on education and research concerning the cultural and ecological history and heritage of southern Lake Champlain. Projects must be located on the southern portion of Lake Champlain (the area of Lake Champlain south of Crown Point in both Vermont and New York) with a preference for projects directly on the lake or in close proximity. School-based projects are encouraged. The fund also aims to support projects that involve experts and others living in the southern Lake Champlain region. Matching funds are encouraged but not required.

Applications must be submitted by 5:00 p.m. Friday, March 6, 2020, and applicants will be notified at the end of May 2020. Please visit vermontcf.org/availablegrants for more information or to apply. Those interested may also contact Celia Cadwell at ccadwell@vermontcf.org or (802) 388-3355 ext. 222 for more information.

The Vermont Community Foundation inspires giving and brings people and resources together to make a difference in Vermont. A family of hundreds of funds and foundations, we provide the advice, investment vehicles, and back-office expertise that make it easy for the people who care about Vermont to find and fund the causes they love.

The heart of the Community Foundation’s work is closing the opportunity gap—the divide that leaves too many Vermonters struggling to get ahead, no matter how hard they work. We are aligning our time, energy, and discretionary resources on efforts that provide access to early care and learning, pathways to college and career training, support for youth and families, and community and economic vitality. We envision Vermont at its best—where everyone has the opportunity to build a bright, secure future.
