Vermont Community Foundation

One of the goals of the Preserve Our Paradise campaign is to create an endowment to provide long-term support to the Mad River Glen Cooperative in its efforts to maintain a traditional, natural skiing experience on General Stark Mountain. The Stark Mountain Foundation has chosen the Vermont Community Foundation (VCF) to manage the Cooperative’s endowment. VCF was founded in 1986 as a permanent source of support for the state’s nonprofits, and currently manages over $190 million in assets, representing 660 funds benefiting a wide variety of Vermont organizations. VCF adheres to the highest ethical and professional standards and will provide a safe and well-managed haven for Mad River’s endowment funds.
