In this pivotal moment for our planet and its people, Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility (VBSR) is committed to bringing new voices and greater access to our movement.

Funds raised as part of the Expanding Our Movement Silent Auction will support greater access, equity, and impact as we grow our movement to revolutionize business in Vermont.

VBSR exists to leverage the power of business for positive social and environmental impact. In order to fully realize our mission, we need to engage new voices in our important work, including students, start-ups, small and rural businesses, and low-income, BIPOC, and LGBTQ+ individuals/organizations. With your support, we can revolutionize business – what it looks like, how it works, and who benefits.



VBSR seeks donations of mission-aligned goods, services, and experiences from generous VBSR members, non-members, and individuals in our community. All donors will be recognized publicly with the option to be anonymous.

In addition to the support that you will show for VBSR, your organization will also benefit from your donation being shared with our 700 members through the promotions for this effort, which include over 7,000 email subscribers. Donating to the silent auction is a great way to support VBSR’s mission while gaining exposure for your brand!

All auction items will be exhibited online October 30th through November 28th (Giving Tuesday 2023). Please note that VBSR is not responsible for the pickup or delivery of donated items – this is solely the responsibility of the donor.

Monday, October 16th is the deadline for all submissions. Thank you for your support!
