Vermont Directory of Foundations Now Available

The Vermont Community Foundation has published the latest version of the Vermont Directory of Foundations in three different ways — printed book, free PDF download, and a free searchable database, now available at .

The actual search form is here; you can search by a variety of factors including grantmaker name, city, field of interest, and type of support. (You can also do a simple keyword search if you like.) Several sorting options are available as well (alphabetical, total giving, and total assets.)

I searched the company name for Foundation and got 278 results. Results are presented in a table showing the name of the grantmaker, city/state, total assets, and total giving. Click on the name of the grantmaker and you’ll get a page of information in a popup window. The page for the Ben & Jerry’s Foundation included notes on the application process, who and what is supported, geographical emphasis (in their case none), examples of causes supported, and so on. There’s a separate tab for links to the latest IRS filings for the organization.

Very speedy. However if you want something to browse, you can go to and either download the directory for free or order a printed copy for $10.
