Donation Initiatives

BBF General Fund

Making a donation to the BBF general fund provides support for BBF’s primary initiatives, including but not limited to supporting 12 Regional Councils; monitoring Vermont’s early childhood system and national policy priorities; using evidence and data to inform policy and decision-making; fostering family and community partnership and engagement; bringing cross-sector stakeholders together to coordinate and develop strategies toward key initiatives (e.g., preK, child care, nutrition, early identification, early childhood and family mental health); and serving as the primary advisor to the Governor and Legislature on the well-being of children and families.

Vermont Early Childhood Fund

The Vermont Early Childhood Fund (VECF) was developed to support creative solutions that will improve the well-being of children (prenatal-age 8) and their families, as well as the Vermont communities in which they live. This fund prioritizes funding towards the needs of communities and recognizes our 12 Regional Councils as the early childhood experts within communities to identify those needs. In both 2022 and moving into 2023, the VECF provided a total of $205,000 in grant funds generously donated by a single private donor through the Vermont Community Foundation’s Sunflower Fund. We are now accepting donations to build this fund for FY23 and beyond!
