Whilst we are in the process of applying for 501 (C) 3 status, we are lucky to have Rural Vermont as our fiscal sponsor.
Rural Vermont is “Vermont’s community of family farmers, neighbors and citizens committed to supporting and cultivating a vital and healthy rural economy and community.” They believe family farms and the local food that they provide are at the heart of thriving communities and environmental sustainability. Economic justice for family farmers is the foundation of a healthy rural economy. Towards this end they strive for fair prices for farmers and work to counter corporate consolidation of agriculture and the food supply.
Rural Vermont is a statewide grassroots organization dedicated to building a prosperous rural life. Rural Vermont supports a rural economic policy for Vermont that recognizes the importance of agriculture and natural resource based industries, support for small rural businesses, along with good jobs, fair wages, and decent health care, housing and transportation for all rural citizens. Rural Vermont is committed to a broad-based sustainable agriculture in harmony with the needs of the family, community, and the environment for future generations.
