Change The Story (CTS) is a multi-year initiative to align philanthropy, policy and program to fast-track women’s economic well-being in Vermont. Our work is fueled by three core partners – the Vermont Women’s Fund, Vermont Commission on Women and Vermont Works for Women – and is advanced with the help of other critical partners throughout the state in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors.
