Future Vermonters will need to explore the rich history of Vermont's past just as we do. With the common bonds of a shared heritage, we have an appreciation of challenges from the past and can better understand today's issues and the legacy we leave to future Vermonters.
It is essential that the Vermont Historical Society continue to bring Vermont's heritage to people throughout the state and preserve our shared history, therefore:
- The Vermont Historical Society will set the standard for statewide work in Vermont history.
- We will reach more people through expanded outreach, leadership in Vermont history education, accessible collections, and participation in public policy discussions.
- Our audiences will be engaged citizens who are informed about the past and motivated to create a better future.
Our endowment is the key to sustaining our future. It is a permanent fund we carefully invest to create income for our programs.
You are part of Vermont, and you can be part of its future. To learn how you can grow our endowment and bring history to the next generations, please visit our planned gift information.
