Member Spotlight

"We've been supporting members of Shelburne Farms for more than 20 years, and have volunteered at numerous events. We have always wished to donate at a higher level and recently a life insurance policy, not included in our estate plans, was brought to our attention. We learned that we could transfer this sum to Shelburne Farms just by signing forms.

We are so pleased to finally have an opportunity to help Shelburne Farms allow others the joys we have experienced here. The local citizenry should forever thank and applaud the Webb Family for establishing this beautiful place." 


- Valerie & Dieter Gump, 500 by the 50th donors
