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 http://fdovermont.foundationcenter.org/ .

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

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
