We depend on the generosity of our partners to maintain and support the Stratton Foundation, our events, and our community. We are grateful to all of our sponsors for their value of Goodwill and commitment to helping Vermont children and families living in economic hardship and without basic necessities.
The Stratton Mountain Resort makes an incredible contribution to the Stratton Foundation every year, in resources, marketing, and manpower, as well as helps to build and strengthen partnerships through their powerful brand, giving back to the Stratton Mountain and Valley Community to help Vermont children & families.
Thank you Stratton.
With the support of the Stratton Foundation, our partnership with NHC and local schools will address significant gaps in critically needed social and mental health services while strengthening linkages to existing service providers. Together, we seek to establish the mental health and basic social services that are accessible to all families and that become integrated with our coordinated school and health care organizations, resulting in an enhancement of the economic vitality and viability of our southern Vermont region.
Thank you Neighborhood Connections.
In partnership with the Burr & Burton Academy, the Stratton Foundation supports the Student Success Program, targeting at-risk teens who aspire to be first-generation college graduates, or who are not yet fulfilling their potential. Since the program's launch in 2013, more than 100 teens have experienced the Student Success Program that provides an intensive focus on mentoring, relationship building, and visioning so students learn to see and seize opportunities made possible through education. Beginning with a summer Success Camp, work continues through the school year with an emphasis on keeping sight of goals, developing habits and skills that lead to success, and recognizing that personal growth comes through the constant pursuit of excellence. This partnership puts us all at the forefront in the fight for the future of our young people, so that our young people become educational groundbreakers in their families, breaking the cycle of generational poverty.
Thank you Burr & Burton.
Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Capital Region (Albany, NY) has supported the Stratton Foundation since 2011 as we share in the mission to create, seek, and support programs and services that directly improve the health and well-being of children. RMHC has provided funding for Hurricane Irene Relief, and Moving Mountains initiatives to breakdown barriers of poverty so that a child can focus on his/her education.
Thank you Ronald McDonald House Charities.
Each year the Vermont Challenge organizes a 1-4 day bike tour through Southern Vermont, collecting donations and giving a portion of registration fees back into the communities that welcomed and hosted the event. Since it began in 2012, the Vermont Challenge has provided over $23,300 to organizations that align with the mission of the Stratton Foundation, providing basic necessities and services to Vermont children and families living in economic hardship. Proceeds from each ride are equally distributed to Black River Good Neighbors - Okemo, Jamaica-Wardsboro Community Food Pantry - Stratton, BROC Community Action "Feed the Freezer" - Killington, Meals on Wheels - Bennington/Manchester, Grace Cottage Hospital - Townshend, and Stratton Mountain Urgent Care/Carlos Otis Clinic - Stratton.
Thank you Vermont Challenge.
