Give by Phone, Check, Stock, or Donor-Advised Funds

At CERF+, we rely on donations to help artists safeguard their careers and recover from emergencies when they strike.

A gift to CERF+ is a powerful way to support the arts and the artists who dedicate their time and energy to creating beautiful work.

In addition to our secure online giving page, we have a number of offline options available to you.

Donate by Check

Checks should be made out to CERF+ and mailed to:

535 Stone Cutters Way, Ste 202
Montpelier, Vermont 05602

You can also complete our donation form and include it with your donation, although it is not required. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at (802) 229-2306 or email [email protected]


Donate by Phone

We'd love to hear from you and would be happy to take your donation over the phone. You can reach us at (802) 229-2306 Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm (ET).

Donor-Advised Funds

A donor-advised fund, or DAF, is a giving vehicle established at a public charity. It allows donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction, and then recommend grants from the fund over time.

Stock, Securities, and Mutual Funds

Donating stock, securities, and mutual fund shares is an effective way to provide direct support to artists in need and strengthen the artists' safety net.

To give a gift of stock to CERF+, please use the transfer information below for People’s United Bank (CERF+’s broker). It is important to have your broker or financial advisor follow these instructions and use the correct account numbers so we may credit the appropriate CERF+ account.

FBO Account #: 61-C358-02-7

Important Note: We ask that you or your broker contact CERF+ to help us be on the alert for the stock you are donating and the number of shares. This is important because your name will not be included in the wire transfer to our broker. If you have any questions, please feel free to have your broker contact us so we can connect them with our representative at People’s United Bank.
