The Vermont Bible Society provides free Bibles to Vermont churches, individuals, and other organizations in the state that need Bibles but have limited resources to pay for them. The Bible Society draws on two generous sources to provide the free Bibles: the Greenleaf Fund and grants from the American Bible Society. Requests for Bibles are made to the Vermont Ecumenical Council & Bible Society office. The Bible Society Committee oversees the work of the Bible Society.

Vermont Bible Society Committee Guidelines
for the use of the Greenleaf Fund

The Greenleaf Fund shall be used for the free distribution of Bibles to individuals and groups in Vermont, or to others with whom Vermonters are working. It may also be used to provide a Bible of choice to each newly-ordained clergy person who resides in Vermont, and to pastors being installed in their first Vermont church. The Fund will provide Bibles to any church destroyed in a catastrophe in Vermont. Any other use of the fund not consistent with this policy must be at the Board of Trustees' discretion.

Colonel Charles Henry Greenleaf was born on July 23, 1841 in Danville, Vermont. He moved with his parents to New Hampshire while still an infant and spent most of his life in New Hampshire and Massachusetts. Throughout his life, he carried a copy of the New Testament in his pocket and read it daily. Upon his death, he left a generous gift to both the Vermont and New Hampshire Bible Societies for the purchase and free distribution of the Holy Bible.

American Bible Society Grant

The American Bible Society (ABS) provides a generous annual grant to each state Bible Society particularly for Bible studies and other scriptural engagement programs. This grant covers the cost of Bibles and other materials published by ABS.
