  • Nonprofit New England Wage and Benefits Report (Vermont Edition) is open. Participate today! Hiring and retaining great workers is one of the biggest challenges we face as nonprofits. That’s why Common Good Vermont partners with the NH Center for Nonprofits and Maine Association of Nonprofits to collect the latest data on wages and benefits from our tri-state area. Each state produces a state-specific report on Wages and Benefits based on the data collected  in this survey. Stay-tuned for a save-the-date and visit the Nonprofit Jobs Posting Board as we continue to make this resource available to Vermont nonprofits!

  • Vermont Nonprofit News is returning to our weekly frequency, as we know this is such an important resource to keep you informed and engaged with the nonprofit sector in the state. 
  • Board Luncheons, Results Based Accountability Training, and our Finance Friday webinar series are currently on hold as we focus on the above resources.
