Gay and Lesbian Fund of Vermont

Bringing Warmth To Those In Need

Despite the temperance of the recent winter, many of our less fortunate neighbors throughout Vermont struggled to pay their winter energy bills.  The current period of prolonged unemployment and sluggishness in the economy, coupled with the staggering devastation of Tropical Storm Irene, made the need for heating assistance enormous.  Our thanks to the many donors to the Gay & Lesbian Fund of Vermont who chose to support the WARMTH and CV Shareheat programs this past winter.

Helping Victims of Domestic Violence

Women Helping Battered Women has been a frequent designee of donors to the Gay & Lesbian Fund of Vermont. Our donors enormously apprecite WHBW’s commitment to ensuring equal access to services for all individuals who have experienced domestic violence.

Remember, if you are in need of help, you can call WHBW’s Domestic Violence Emergency Hotline any time at 802-658-1996 or 800-ABUSE95

Helping Vermont Women Achieve Economic Independence

Another local nonprofit receiving multiple designations from donors to the Gay & Lesbian Fund of Vermont in recent months is Vermont Works For Women, which teaches job skills to girls and women so that they may ultimately change their lives through economic independence. Our donors share Vermont Works for Women’s belief in the potential of girls and women and applaude that the agency acts on this belief in ways that allow their clients to constructively pursue their dreams.

Reaching Out to Haiti

The Vermont Haiti Project is committed to sustainability and capacity-building through one-on-one contact between its volunteers and the people of Haiti. Donors to the Gay & Lesbian Fund requested that their dollars be applied as needed to support the Project’s development of a vocational training center, children’s orphanage and school, and a water filtration project benefiting the people of Haiti.
