The steadfast support of our long-time friends and gifts from our new members is vital to the work we do throughout Vermont.
This year, we had approximately 4,000 members, including 400 new members!
Thanks to members’ support, in the past three decades we have protected forests, farms, shorelines, wildlife habitat, and public trails in virtually every corner of Vermont.
Learn about what we've accomplished lately by visiting our news page.

Giving in Honor of Others
Honorary and Memorial Giving: Some members like to give in honor of a living or deceased person. If you do this, we will send notification to the recipient (or survivors) telling them that you have made a gift in their name.
Weddings: Are you getting married in lovely Vermont? Would you like to commemorate the occasion in a meaningful and personal way? Several soon-to-be-wed couples have chosen to include the Vermont Land Trust in their gift registry. A wedding couple may give a gift to VLT in honor of their guests, or may ask their guests to choose philanthropy as a gift to them.
