Vermeer Charitable Foundation supports local and educational efforts in 2022

As Vermeer Corporation has grown, so has Vermeer Charitable Foundation (VCF).

In 2022, the VCFs largest 20 gifts demonstrated a connection to local and educational organizations with more than $1,075,000 given to local organizations with an additional $794,000 given to educational institutions.

“Our foundation works to mirror the caring culture of Vermeer Corporation as we focus our giving in the communities our team members live, work and play,” said Tricia Vermeer, executive director of the VCF. “We also focus on educational institutions at all levels – preschools, elementary schools, high schools and colleges and universities.”

The City of Pella Indoor Recreation Center, Lake View Camp, Wesley Life and south-central Iowa Christian and community school districts were the recipients of the larger awards funded by the VCF.

The vision of VCF is to be an agent of God’s resources, serving locally, regionally and worldwide to bring God honor and praise.
