Investing in Lake Morey’s future while responding to its foremost needs today

Our Purpose

The mission of the Lake Morey Foundation (LMF) is to protect, preserve, conserve and enhance Lake Morey in Fairlee, VT, and its watershed and viewshed as an environmental, recreational and economic resource.

To that end, the Foundation raises funds to be used for fostering and expanding the efforts of organizations seeking to enrich the ecosystem of Lake Morey and its locale. Our goal is to facilitate an interactive community revolving around Lake Morey’s water quality, along with its natural and man-made surroundings.

Strategic Focus:

To achieve its mission, the Lake Morey Foundation provides grant funding for projects, programs and activities that focus on the lake in one or more of the following ways:

  • Safeguarding water quality
  • Preserving and conserving surrounding environment
  • Enhancing community initiatives

We believe that meeting the critical needs of Lake Morey today is an investment in the vitality of its future. Partnering with local organizations to fund initiatives that address these goals is key to our success. Your generous donations are crucial for LMF to carry out these objectives!

Conservation Spotlight:  MOREY MOUNTAIN

During 2018 the Lake Morey Foundation, through the generosity of 97 donors, purchased 148 acres on Morey Mountain and transferred ownership to the Upper Valley Land Trust for conservation stewardship. Low-impact recreational trails are open and UVLT’s ongoing resource management is critical to maintaining Lake Morey’s healthy watershed. Read about this initiative here!
