The Rensselaerville Institute is “The Think Tank With Muddy Boots”.  We achieve clear and quantifiable outcomes for human gain by training, supporting, and partnering with the innovators who are the sparkplugs for change.  Currently we do this with nonprofits, schools, communities, universities, corporations, foundations, and government agencies.  Our mission is not simply an idea, but rather a tangible promise whose results are seen in people and places throughout the country.

In 2014 The Rensselaerville Institute has helped:

  • Raise the achievement of 8,825 students at some of our country's most beleaguered schools
  • Improve the lives of over 18,000 people living in 20 struggling Appalachian communities
  • Realign $250,000,000 from activities to results in 7 philanthropic organizations
  • Increase the gains of 60 non-profits and nearly 4,000 people they serve
