The High Meadows Fund promotes vibrant communities and a healthy natural environment while encouraging long term economic vitality in Vermont.
Vermont's communities, environment, and economy are threatened by the changing climate. We address this challenge within three areas of focus:
- Energy: Improving buildings and transportation systems in order to use less and cleaner energy.
- Land Use: Encouraging working farms and forests, compact settlements, and resilient watershed land use.
- Sustainable Agriculture: Promoting healthy soil and expanding agricultural markets.
We do our work through charitable grantmaking, research, convening, direct engagement of our staff, and investing for mission impact. We particularly value initiatives that demonstrate social and marketplace innovations.
In July 2015, the High Meadows Fund committed $249,000 to promote planning and action within Vermont's watersheds. Click on the photo below to learn more:
