While the rate of volunteerism in Vermont is impressive, the potential to do even more good in our communities is vast. The ability to scale, however, is limited by understaffed nonprofits who often lack the capacity and infrastructure to manage volunteers. Similarly businesses rarely have a designated corporate volunteer program, so volunteer connections are underutilized.
This campaign would enable me to create Vermont Connector, a small woman-owned business, that would connect people, place, and passion through a coordinated approach to community service. The goal of this campaign is to enable me to launch the business and to pay for typical business start-up costs, such as:develop a business and marketing plan, to assess the community and volunteer landscape in Vermont, to directly coordinate volunteer engagement between businesses and non-profit organizations, and to develop resources for more timely and efficient community engagement.
Our approach is rooted in a deep understanding of the Vermont landscape and a desire to create enduring partnerships and alliances. At its core, VT Connector amplifies business and non-profit linkages and heightens the collective impact of working together.
