Member Spotlight: Vermont Parks Forever
Together, we’re making our parks better for everyone!
In 2017, Vermont Parks Forever (VPF), the foundation for Vermont State Parks, launched its Business Partnership Program. We were thrilled to have over 20 businesses, who value and share in our love for Vermont’s 55 state parks, participate in the program. We hope to double that support this year!
VPF business partners support our work on behalf of Vermont State Parks by making a charitable gift to Vermont Parks Forever. To show our appreciation, we offer free park passes to share around the office, awesome VPF swag, and recognition across different public platforms like our website, social media, email and print media.
Thanks to this program and the generous business community, as well as support from individuals and foundations, VPF is able to help underserved communities visit state parks, inspire environmental stewardship, and create innovative educational experiences within our parks. Over the last five years, VPF has played a significant role in the opening of two new state parks, a summer internship at Mt. Philo State Park, an annual program providing free park access to Vermont foster families, and an innovative partnership with ECHO, Leahy Center for Lake Champlain to revitalize park nature centers.
With the business community by our side, we are excited to continue and expand our work to make Vermont’s state parks even more wonderful. We hope your business will join us!
