Due to the cancellation of the New England Veterinary Medical Conference this fall, our major source of funding for VVMAF scholarships, the contributions of VVMA members is even more important if we are to make meaningful contributions to Vermonters in 2021.  

Thank you to these VVMA members for contributing to our scholarship program in 2021!

Why Give to the VVMAF?
The educational debt of 2016 veterinary school graduates was $167,535, and 20% of them had debts over $200,000!  It is difficult for graduates seeking their first job to carry such a large financial burden on top of all their other living expenses.  We want to lessen their debt load and help Vermonters reach their goal of becoming veterinarians.  This is a great opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of future Vermont veterinarians and we hope you'll be a part of it!  Your contribution is tax-deductible.

Our Silent Auction at our 2020 Winter Meeting raised nearly $1,900 for our scholarship program!  Thank you to everyone who donated the items or bought them.   And a special thank you to Dr. Adrienne Snider of Petit Brook Veterinary Clinic for organizing it!

Here are some present VVMA members who received past Foundation awards as veterinary students!
