Mission:
We exist to build a stronger Chittenden County in order to improve peoples' lives.

We believe in a shared vision for this community that is absolutely achievable if and when public and private sectors, and community members at large, join together in a shared responsibility for achieving that vision. It cannot be achieved by philanthropy alone. It takes partnership with educators, business leaders, nonprofits, health care providers, law enforcement, government, parents -- EVERYONE working together.
