We support earth and animal organizations - in a big way. A very large portion of our profits is donated to promote the preservation and protection of the planet and the animals that inhabit it.

Discover Vermilion is not a 501(c)(3) organization, but does operate as a non profit. The website does not make a profit, and does not seek to make a profit. It is provided as a service to the community and is operated by volunteers. After years of requests by area businesses and organizations to advertise on the website, we created a “sponsorship” program to allow local businesses to promote themselves on the site. Any proceeds raised through sponsors are used to fund the website. The site has no paid employees. All businesses and organizations in Vermilion are promoted on the site, whether sponsors or not.
