Partners, Funders & Sponsors
Local Motion's partners, funders, and sponsors are a major part of what makes our work possible. We work closely with government agencies, other nonprofits, philanthropic foundations, and businesses across the state, and new partners come onboard every day.
Many thanks to every one of these amazing organizations for supporting a walkable, bikeable Vermont! Please let them know how much you appreciate what they do.
Local Motion is proud to partner with a wide range of public agencies and nonprofit organizations whose missions intersect with ours. From major state agencies to local public health nonprofits, we look for common ground and ways we can move forward together. Some of these partners provide funding for Local Motion's work; others are collaborators whose efforts complement our own. Those who provide financial support also appear under the "Major Funders" section of our site.
A little more than a third of Local Motion's budget comes from grants from and contracts with various public and private funders. From our "Bike Ped Planning" contract with the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission to a capacity-building grant from the Ben & Jerry's Foundation, there are many sources of funding that make our work possible. Together with our business sponsors and our many individual members, these funders allow Local Motion to be a true statewide advocate for walking and biking.
Local Motion's business members and sponsors support our work for many reasons. Some have many employees who bike to work and want to encourage and support them. Others see a vibrant, walkable community as a great way to bring more customers in the door. Still others are competing on the national scene to attract top talent, and know that a walkable, bikeable community is one of the things that people who can get a job anywhere are looking for. And all of them recognize that Local Motion's visibility and reach are an asset for any business that is looking to make its mark in Vermont.
If any of these reasons ring true for your business, please consider joining us! Business memberships start at just $250 per year, and sponsorship opportunities for specific Local Motion programs are available at the $1,000 level and up. And we welcome donations at any level from businesses that simply want to support a walkable, bikeable Vermont.
