There are many ways to support land conservation and the Vermont Land Trust.
The Vermont Land Trust couldn't have achieved everything it has without the dedicated support of our members. Members will receive our publications and invitations to special events such as our Annual Celebration. When you make a gift, your investment guarantees that open space will be part of Vermont’s way of life -forever. Join today!
Each year, we join together with local communities to conserve properties that require community fundraising. Typically these properties have some community-oriented focus; such as a farm that provides food locally, a sledding hill, or a town forest. Read more.
Sometimes land conservation requires financial strategies that allow us to act quickly when land is for sale. Conservation buyers can help with loans, liquidity to buy and hold a piece of land temporarily, or other restricted gifts. We typically pair conservation buyers with a project in our Farmland Access Program. Read more.
One of the largest hurdles for a new farmer is the cost of buying land. Through the generosity of conservation buyers and other creative giving to our Farmland Access Program we arrange for the purchase, conservation, and resale of farms to new farmers at a price they can afford. Read more.
Support our efforts to protect Vermont's rural character and countryside by conserving your own Vermont property. By donating or selling a conservation easement to VLT, you can permanently protect your land from development, and enjoy a range of financial or tax benefits. Read more.
