Corporate Support

Corporate Partners are businesses that support Vermont CARES with annual, quarterly, or monthly sponsorships that sustain our efforts throughout the year. Our Corporate Partners make it possible for us to more effectively plan events and to attract additional businesses to our circle of donors. Your business can become a Corporate Partner with a contribution at or above the $1000 level. In appreciation, we will promote your business on our website, at our events, and in our publications. Please contact us to discuss the options of participating in this program.

Resource Bank

Our clients are challenged not only by health care, but also by financial constraints. Their needs are many. In addition to the basic services we provide, Vermont CARES maintains a resource bank of materials and services that clients can turn to in times of scarcity or crisis. We accept donations of new and gently used household goods, personal care items, health enhancement services like massage and yoga classes, and gift cards to food stores from businesses. If your business would like to participate in this program, please contact Jean Sienkewicz through email or at 800.649.2437. Our website will list items or services our clients are most in need of and which we are unable to supply because of budget constraints.

Planned Giving

Bequests in wills, Charitable Remainder Trusts, Charitable Gift Annuities, and other planned giving options can make it possible for you to support Vermont CARES in ways that make the best sense for your financial situation, sometimes reducing taxes. During and after your lifetime your generosity can help ensure that CARES’ services and programs will continue to serve those in need. For information about planned giving, please contact Peter Jacobsen through email or at 802-863-2437 x 1.

Government Funding and Grants

A combination of Federal and State contracts contribute approximately 75 percent of our income, while Foundation and Private grants add another 3 percent. We are grateful for this level and variety of support, which makes it possible for us to maintain our operations and serve our clients.
