Funds at VCS

In addition to the Annual Fund—Vermont Commons’ yearly fundraising effort that directly supports our mission and operating budget—VCS maintains several different funds that support specific programs and endeavors at the school. You can make a gift toward any of these funds at any time. Your generosity is the foundation of all that we do.

The Class of 2020 Faculty Chair Award Fund

Recognizes faculty members whose excellence inspires and embodies a love of learning and a commitment to community

The Class of 2021 Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Scholarship Fund

Supports VCS’s commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion by providing scholarships to qualifying students

Encounter Week Scholarship Fund

Supports scholarships so that students who receive financial aid can also receive up to $1,000 toward any Big Trip during their tenure at VCS

VCS Endowment Fund

Gifts to the Endowment Fund are invested and grow over time to support VCS in the future.  

Your gift can go directly to any of these funds by writing a check to Vermont Commons School and indicating the fund in the memo.
