The Hoehl Family Foundation was founded in 1993 by Robert and Cynthia Hoehl with a mission to enhance the lives of Vermonters.  The Foundation is dedicated to helping those in need, honoring the legacy of the generosity of the Hoehl family over time. The Board is committed to their mission to enhance the lives of Vermonters through the support of nonprofits that help meet Vermonters’ basic human needs, education, religious beliefs and health. With Robert’s passing in 2010, the Foundation lives in legacy of his philanthropic spirit, and the family’s continued dedication to helping those most in need.  The Hoehls were named the Most Outstanding Vermont Family Philanthropists by the Association of Fundraising Professionals in 2002.

The Hoehl Family Foundation made a $1 million grant to Lund’s 50 Joy Drive Capital Campaign. This leadership gift helped to realize the 20,000 sq. ft. building at 50 Joy Drive.  The Hoehl family has been close to Lund for many years and have supported a variety of Lund’s activities.  In addition, Martha Hoehl has served as a Lund Trustee.

As well as supporting Lund, the foundation has supported the Stern Center, St. Michael’s College, The Boys and Girls Club, the Burlington Land Trust and numerous other deserving organizations.   Alison Calde­rara, spokeswoman for the Community Health Center of Burlington one of the other local non-profits that the foundation supports, said in a 2010 Burlington Free Press article, “Bob Hoehl not only helped transform the Com­munity Health Center, but also his Burlington commu­nity. His warm-hearted­ness, compassion and gen­erosity set a standard that few can follow.”

We are so grateful and proud to be honoring the Hoehl Family Foundation at the 2014 Heart of the Community Awards for their huge impact on the lives of so many .
