An educational organization and historic property as extensive and complex as Shelburne Farms needs a significant endowment to assure its long-term sustainability.  Shelburne Farms current endowment is undersized for an organization with a $12M budget, and the endowment generates just 2% of the nonprofit’s annual operating revenue. Growing our endowment is critical to the Farm’s continued success. By making a special gift to the Endowment Fund, you ensure the continued success of Shelburne Farms and all of our programs educating for a sustainable future, now and for generations to come.  Thank you!
