Serving Rutland County residents since 1943, we are an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the common good, focusing on health, education and financial stability. We are the largest non-governmental fundraiser for local services in our community.
Community Impact funding is for programs in identified areas of need, determined by teams of volunteers who live and work in our community. Their decisions are based on expert knowledge, feedback, and statistical data, e.g. from needs assessments.
