Our People

Meet Our Council

The Vermont Women's Fund is governed by a diverse Council of women from around Vermont. We seek representatives of all ages, from all corners of the state, each bringing their own unique blend of experiences and skills from their professional and personal lives. Our Council is a "working board," actively involved in all aspects of the organization's grantmaking, fundraising, and general operations. Council members serve three year terms and, after taking one year off, may be appointed to serve again in future years.
