Stark Mountain Foundation

In our 11th year, SIPtemberfest is excited to team up with the Stark Mountain Foundation as our beneficiary.

Their mission is to preserve and protect the environment and ecosystem of General Stark Mountain, including its recreational access and historic value, and to support programs that promote and sustain that environment for the enjoyment of present and future generations.

General Stark Mountain is the home of SIPtemberfest and we felt it was time for us to help support the organization that helps preserve our home.


Since its inception in 2000, The Stark Mountain Foundation (SMF), a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, has worked closely with organizations such as the Preservation Trust of Vermont, the Green Mountain Club and the Mad River Glen Cooperative to preserve the unique and historic environment of Stark Mountain.
