Local Partnerships Built on Trust
The Vandermark Foundation is only able to make an impact because of partnerships with local communities and the strong caring organizations working there. Through partnerships, built over the years, we have been able to bring resources to programs working directly with the most-needy people and families and has helped institutions of higher education apply their knowledge to real-world environments. This has led to a number of joint ventures among our grantee organizations and allowed for an enriched exchange of information and resources. We have been fortunate enough to work with programs that educate and nurture women in India, provide a home for street children in Hanoi and Saigon, support families adopting children with special needs, develop parenting education materials for families struggling through divorce and build clean water systems to small rural communities in the Dominican Republic.
