Founded in 1995 and supported by profits from the Vermont Country Store, The Orton Family Foundation works to build vibrant, enduring communities. We help small cities and towns articulate, implement and steward their heart and soul so that they can adapt to change while enhancing the attributes they value most. The Foundation works on the ground primarily in the Northeast and Rocky Mountain West, while seeking to influence the fields of land use planning and community development across the country. The Foundation promotes inclusive, proactive land use planning and community development by providing guidance, tools, research, capital and other support to citizens and leaders.
The Orton Family Foundation is an equal opportunity employer: It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, sexual preference, age, disability, creed, religion or veteran status.
