Join VBSR

VBSR members represent innovative businesses and organizations who share the common goal of conducting business with high standards for employees, their communities, and the environment.

We ask everyone considering membership to take a moment before joining to reflect on our mission and our multiple bottom line approach (see below), and consider how your own business ethics and goals will provide a positive addition to VBSR's membership.

Refund Policy: I understand VBSR dues are payable annually on the anniversary of my join date and are nonrefundable. I also understand that VBSR dues are not deductible as a charitable contribution but a percentage (75%) may be deductible as a business expense. However, a portion of dues, 25%, is NOT deductible as a business expense, as VBSR uses this portion to engage in lobbying activities in the Vermont State House and, occasionally, on the national level.

Welcome to Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility!
