The Windham Foundation

Promoting Vermont’s Rural Communities

Established in 1963, the Windham Foundation carries the mission of promoting the vitality of Grafton and Vermont’s rural communities through its philanthropic and educational programs.

The Windham Foundation

The Grafton Inn is part of the nonprofit Windham Foundation of Grafton, Vermont, whose mission is to promote the vitality of Grafton and Vermont’s rural communities through its philanthropic and educational programs and its subsidiaries whose operations contribute to these endeavors.

In short, when you stay at or dine at The Grafton Inn, you are helping to promote Vermont’s rural communities.

The Foundation’s affiliated for-profit businesses, including the Grafton Inn, Grafton Ponds, and the Grafton Village Cheese Company, operate to further this mission directly, and their earned income assists in funding Foundation programs.
