Silent Auction & Fundraiser

Uniting for a Cause: How Support Makes a Difference

In 2022, we were thrilled to introduce the Expanding Our Movement Fund to our valued members and friends. This initiative embodies our unwavering commitment to amplifying new voices and enhancing accessibility within our organization. To bring this vision to life, VBSR proudly launched two exciting endeavors: a virtual Silent Auction and a late-fall Fundraiser.

Support the Movement

Don’t want to bid in the Silent Auction or attend the Fundraiser – but still want to contribute to the Expanding Our Movement Fund? 


Empowering Change Through Fundraising Initiatives

Both of these initiatives are driven by a shared goal: to generate funds that empower VBSR to revolutionize the business landscape. We're not just talking about change; we're actively reshaping what business looks like and how it operates.

Our focus lies in pioneering cutting-edge business education, fostering collective action, wielding business influence, and nurturing leaders who embody our core values.

About the Silent Auction

VBSR members, who represent 46 different industries across the state, generously donate an array of compelling, buzz-worthy products, services and experiences.

Bidding on these items not only raises funds but also helps us advance our mission of making business more accessible, equitable, and impactful as we grow our movement to revolutionize business in Vermont.

Wondering What Kind of Items?

Here are a few examples from previous auctions:

  • Limited edition autographed Phish concert poster

  • Design-Your-Own ice cream in Ben & Jerry’s R&D kitchen

  • Musical experiences from The Beatles to jazz

  • Hand-crafted, bespoke, and singular works of art and household items

  • Cheeses, beers, teas, coffees, cookies and farm-to-table meals

  • Brewery tours and AirBnB packages

Contributing to the Silent Auction is not only a fantastic way to support VBSR's mission, but it also provides exposure for your brand.

About the Fundraiser, Celebrating Our Movement

Attendees of the Celebrating Our Movement Fundraiser network with the VBSR community enjoy delicious hors d’oeuvres, cocktails and mocktails created by VBSR member producers in a late-fall soiree setting.

But this event is more than just a soirée; it's a gathering of innovators and changemakers who have played pivotal roles in shaping the VBSR movement.

Throughout the evening, these inspiring individuals will share brief yet powerful insights into the impact our collective efforts have had on our economy, our people, and our planet.
