Grant Seeker Guidelines
The Stratton Foundation is a community based non-profit organization that cares about the health and welfare of children and their families in southern Vermont. The mission of the Stratton Foundation is to address the challenges of poverty that stand between a child in-need and the opportunity to be healthy, safe, and educated. The goal of the Stratton Foundation is to end the cycle of generational poverty by helping at-risk children become successful adults.
It is the Foundation’s desire to facilitate the startup of new, and advancement of critically needed programs and services by funding initiatives with a strong plan to be self-sustaining.
What does the Stratton Foundation Fund?
The Stratton Foundation supports programs that address the challenges of poverty. These include programs that strive to care for the well-being, health and hygiene of its poorest children; foster school-readiness by reducing barriers to learning; and help children develop competencies and skills necessary to lead a more productive life.
Programs must fall into at least one of following four major focus areas:
- Food and Hunger – to end the injustice of food and malnutrition.
- Health and Dental Health – to care for the health and wellbeing of our disadvantaged children
- Basic Necessities – so that low income families can access services, remain safe, warm, and secure.
- Education that helps children and teens develop a vision for a future with economic independence.
When evaluating requests, the Foundation considers the balance of geography, needs and resources in the community. It considers programs that are:
- New or existing initiatives; and
- Able to demonstrate the capacity to sustain the necessary services using good administrative and financial management.

Early Childhood (0-3)
Early investments open up a lifetime of potential and opportunity
Healthy development for children ages 0-3 provides the building blocks for strong communities, lifelong health, and educational and career success. This period represents a time of incredible growth and potential for young children and families. Early relationships with caregivers can promote healthy development and encourage early literacy for infants and toddlers.
In addition, early experiences, positive and negative, impact the developing brain and make it vital that we address issues societal and racial disparities, support the whole family, and treat caregivers and early educators as equal partners in widespread social change.
A solid, high-quality K-12 education is essential for long-term college and career success, as well as for general well-being and personal growth.
We know that students succeed when teachers have real-time support; schools are well-resourced; and schools take a compassionate, strengths-based approach to engaging kids. We want all students to gain entry to college or career training programs, and to be treated with dignity and respect throughout their entire educational experience. To create upward mobility for children, we need to improve and align the institutions that serve them.
Music & Arts
At the Turrell Fund, we believe that music and the arts change lives
Learning an instrument, developing artistic skills, and being part of a community of practice instills self-esteem and new pathways for connecting with others. We believe the potent benefits of arts education extend past the early years for children and families across the age range. All children, regardless of socioeconomic background or zip code, deserve access to high-quality arts education opportunities.
Direct services are essential to providing support to children and families who need them.
From shelters, to food banks, to mental health services, these programs improve the well-being of individuals in their communities and respond to all types of need.
Every family is entitled to nutritious food, high-quality early care, compassionate healthcare, diapers, and every resource necessary to give their children a strong start. Ultimately, these services promote equity and opportunity in communities, providing a safe space for individuals to garner expert support and overcome hardship.
Systemic racism, entrenched poverty, and flawed policy decisions punish BIPOC (black, Indigenous and people of color) families, stifle social mobility, and hold our communities back.
We fight alongside our partners to ensure access to high-quality, affordable child care, enhanced pediatric care, and trauma-informed service delivery. We also work to ensure equity and compassion in the child welfare system.
Who we are, what we care about, how we work — and what guides our giving strategy.

Securing healthy food systems
Building Vermont’s capacity to produce safe, healthy food, and expanding everyone’s access to it, nourishes the well-being of our farms, our families and our communities.
From the grass roots all the way up, the need to protect and strengthen our democratic systems has never been greater than it is today.
Advancing knowledge about the natural world — and Lake Champlain in particular — has long been a foundation priority.
Our Legacy Giving is focused into two fields:
Women’s Reproductive Health
- Midwifery and lactation support
- Supporting women’s mental and emotional health (both before and after childbirth)
Media & Civic Engagement
- Current events
- Reflection and analysis of ongoing problems
- Education about the public policy process
Vermont Community Foundation
Spark Connecting Community
Spark Connecting Community grants put building and nurturing community front and center. We aim to support grassroots work that builds social capital—the connective tissue of our communities. Social capital can be described as the value developed from working together, connecting across differences, and sharing common place-based experiences. Higher levels of social capital are correlated with better health outcomes, higher educational achievement, increased civic engagement, and greater resilience—all of which help build community vitality.
This grassroots grantmaking model focuses on strengthening community connections that lead to action and impact. This is a grant round for local champions who are collaborating with others; we want to help you turn your idea into a reality!
- We are looking to fund projects throughout Vermont.
- We are looking for projects where a small grant can make a big difference.
- We want to collect stories and share them widely, to help create even more sparks that inspire more philanthropy.
National Life Group Charitable Foundation
National Life Group Foundation
At National Life, we believe strong connections are the ties of strong communities. We also believe being a good corporate citizen is about more than writing checks. It’s about listening to the needs of our community and offering to help however we can.
We offer grants to nonprofits, but we also empower our employees to give their time by making it possible for them to volunteer for and donate even more to the organizations they care about. We are proud to support nonprofits where our employees live and work (Vermont and Texas), and also of our work empowering educators and students nationwide through our LifeChanger of the Year program and the National Coalition of Safe Schools. We make a difference in many other ways too, including our Do Good Fest and our corporate cause: to help end childhood hunger in Vermont.
What We Fund
The Foundation’s annual budget is $2 million. While this is substantial, there is a lot of need in our communities, so our giving is focused. Our grants vary in size and we rarely fund an entire program.
We look for proposals that have:
- a well-planned approach to underlying issues or needs
- a base of support
- metrics to support success
We do not fund new programs. We instead focus on proven programs. We favor programs that focus on childhood hunger and children and families, but we also consider those in the health and human services, the environment, education, and the arts and recreation.
