HELP DIRECT $50,000 TO VERMONT NONPROFITS

This past year has left many of our neighbors in need. Vermont’s nonprofits have risen to the challenge, supporting our communities in the face of unprecedented demand. We Care 2, our member-directed giving program, offers you an opportunity to direct $50,000 in support of five exceptional local nonprofits.

Out of 48 applicants, the VSECU Giving Committee selected five finalists that are making a strong, positive impact on Vermonters’ essential needs of food, shelter, heat, environment, or financial education, with a focus on COVID-19 relief efforts. Your vote amounts to a donation to your preferred nonprofit, with $50,000 in funds distributed among the five organizations based on the percentage of votes received.

To help you cast your vote, we’ve included information about each nonprofit’s mission and how they plan to use their We Care 2 funds.
