GIVE > Overview
Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports is committed to getting folks involved with healthy activity any way we can. Removing the barrier of the cost, or using a sliding scale fee system for participating in our programs allows people with disabilities affordable access to sports and recreation.
Annually, we must raise more than $200,000 in contributions from businesses, foundations and individuals in order to help defray programming costs. We continue to reach out to community partners and seek opportunities that will allow us to provide programming to our clients at little or no cost.
