Resources for Nonprofits

  • Nonprofit organizations impacted by storms and flooding may seek funding through the Foundation’s Special and Urgent Needs (SUN) grant program. Organizations may request up to $5,000. This funding is intended to support those organizations directly impacted by storms and flooding. Grant funding will support physical and/or capital repairs, loss of revenue because of closure and/or canceled programs, and damage to technology, among other, similar urgent needs. Please visit org/SUN for more information and to apply.
  • Complete the Nonprofit Connection Form. Entries to the form are being reviewed weekly and are shared cross-departmentally at the Foundation. It serves as a tool for communication between a potential grantseeker and the Foundation's Grants and Community Impact team, as well as a way for Foundation staff to learn more about specific needs. Our colleagues on the philanthropy team review entries to the form regularly and can direct nonprofits of interest to Donor Advised Fundholders (DAFs). The form takes between 10-15 minutes to complete.
  • Contact the Grants & Community Impact team at or 802-388-3355 opt. 6. Our team is recording multiple inquiries related to nonprofit funding needs and requests.
  • The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) will provide low-interest disaster loans to certain private nonprofit organizations for damage from severe storms, flooding, landslides, and mudslides that began on July 7. More information is available online here.
  • Vermont Humanities has an emergency grant program for nonprofit cultural and humanities organizations in Vermont that suffered physical or economic damage due to the severe weather events that began on July 10, 2023. Learn more and apply.
