Events Overview

Special events are an important part of our fundraising efforts. When creating an event, our goal is to provide a meaningful experience at a good value for our constituents. We believe this is the best way to build good will, heighten public awareness and to raise funds. As an organization that serves children, we work hard to create events that are family friendly, or at least have a component that celebrates children.

Our signature event is The Polar Express™, an annual holiday event we’ve been hosting since 2002. In the spring, we enlist the support of Vermont artists for our Art of Giving event.  Throughout the year, we hold smaller events within different communities to highlight the work of our grantees.

New events will be posted here, so check back often.
