Draper Richards Kaplan Foundation

Educational Resource Type: Start Up Funding
Subject Area: Social Entrepreneurship/Sustainability
About Draper Richards Kaplan Foundation

Start Up Funding
The Draper Richards Kaplan Foundation partners with entrepreneurs to build strong and capable organizations. We believe that multi-year, unrestricted grant funding is essential for an organization to plan properly, hire well, and focus on its mission. If a leader can build a strong organization from the beginning, the organization has a much better chance at scaled and sustainable impact. To that end, The Draper Richards Kaplan Foundation provides $300,000 in startup funding, paid over 3 years, to organizations that show extraordinary promise.

Management Assistance
We serve as advisors and partners during the critical early years as the organizations build their infrastructure and begin to scale. We use a venture capital model and conduct extensive diligence before funding. We work closely with grantees on governance, strategy, management issues and growth, usually serving on their boards of directors.

Network of Entrepreneurs
Our portfolio is an actively expanding array of the brightest stars of the non-profit sector. Our entrepreneurs have a reputation for collaborating and setting a standard of excellence for their sector. The Foundation fosters collaboration through an annual entrepreneur retreat, events throughout the year, and group calls on management techniques and other topics pertinent to the portfolio.

About Northeast Organic Farming Association of Vermont

The NOFA Vermont Revolving Loan Fund was jointly established in 1994 by NOFA Vermont and Chittenden Bank’s Socially Responsible Banking Fund (formally Vermont National Bank).

The motivation to create the fund arose from an increasing number of loan requests from small scale organic farmers; farmers who lack credit history and therefore could not secure conventional loans; and the need for short-term working capital.

University of Vermont

Educational Resource Type: Scholarship
Level: Undergraduate
Subject Area: Environmental Engineering
About University of Vermont

Provides prestigious, competitive awards to outstanding undergraduate engineers who wish to pursue a specific research project under the mentorship of a faculty member. The proposed projects must fit within the general research area of the faculty advisor and must be approved prior to proposal submission. In this way, undergraduates have the opportunity and resources to pursue independent research as well as work closely with active faculty members who are leading scholars in their fields.

The competition is structured to mirror both the application process and the execution of a program that would typically be funded by an external granting agency:

students are required to submit a proposal describing a specific research project to be completed under the direction of a faculty mentor;
proposals are evaluated by a panel of four UVM College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences faculty, and the top ranked proposals are elected for funding; and
awardees carry out the research during a semester and a summer, create and present a poster describing their work and their results, and submit a final report detailing the outcomes.
In many instances, results may be suitable for presentation at regional or national conferences and/or publication. Also, awardees are honored at a special event each year, and their efforts are publicized by the University.

Priority is given to students in their sophomore and junior year.

About Veront Student Assistance Corporation

A grant is an outright gift of money that usually doesn’t need to be repaid. That’s why it’s sometimes referred to as “gift aid.“

Most grants are based on a family’s level of financial need.

The Vermont Legislature designates a certain amount of grant money every year for Vermont residents who want to pursue education or training beyond high school. These grants are administered through VSAC.
