Wish List & In-Kind

Make a Wish a Reality

Vermont Adaptive accepts in-kind gifts of services and tangible goods that support our programs.

Your gift ensures that we are well prepared for all of the little things, the big things, and the everyday items that will enhance the overall experience for our participants. You are welcome to sponsor the purchase of any item on our wish list as well. Please contact Norm by email or call 802.786.4991.

Shop Amazon Smile and we’ll receive 0.5% of your eligible purchases in a donation from Amazon. Every little bit adds up, so if you’re shopping on Amazon, please make us your charity of choice by clicking the logo below. You can also visit our Amazon Wish List directly here.
