Vermilion Endowment Fund

Vermilion Point Nature Preserve

Would you like for your legacy to include caring for this special place on Lake Superior forever?


What is the Vermilion Endowment Fund?

A fund has been established to protect and share Vermilion Point Nature Preserve forever. The Vermilion Endowment Fund has been created to raise $1 million by 2023 for this unique and remote preserve. $330,000 has already been raised! Any donation to help this fund get to $1,000,000 will be matched through 2022.

Caring for Vermilion

The fund will be used for the care, conservation, maintenance, and upkeep of Vermilion including:

  • Maintaining an accessible parking area
  • Improving and maintaining signs
  • Hiring a local caretaker
  • Maintaining the buildings in a safe and stable condition 

A portion of income earned on the fund each year will be used to forward the overall mission of Little Traverse Conservancy.
