Christine Zachai is the Executive Director of the Permanent Fund for the Well-Being of Vermont Children, a supporting foundation of the Vermont Community Foundation with the mission of promoting healthy, happy children and families in Vermont through the funding and support of community-based prevention strategies.
Prior to joining the Permanent Fund as their first staffperson in February 2006, Zachai had led the Vermont Women's Fund as Executive Director for three years where she established the brand of the VWF, doubled revenues, re-vamped grantmaking, and connected the VWF to women and girls across the state in their 10th anniversary year.
Zachai started her professional life largely in the non-profit sector, holding Director of Development positions with the Vermont Youth Conservation Corps and a domestic violence agency outside of Portland, Oregon.

VYCC Development Director Christine Zachai said there are more than 300 volunteers each year working in nine state parks, as well as working with "roving crews" in towns and rural communities. The Montpelier group is a roving crew that also worked at Missisquoi National Wildlife Refuge near Swanton this summer, painting its headquarters building and performing maintenance work in the parking lot and on trials. She said volunteers are encouraged to work as a team, learn new skills, and journal their experiences, to be included in "Word," a compendium of writings that explore many issues facing youth today.Volunteers are also encouraged to collectively produce a public presentation of their project, including maps and other project information. "This marks the fourth year that the VYCC has partnered with the city of Montpelier to support the city's Statehouse path," said Zachai."Seven crews in all have worked on the path, close to 56 corps members over the past four years. "We've installed culverts, built retaining walls, removed stumps, cleared trails, constructed stone walls and built rock steps on the Statehouse path," she added. Teens taking part in the work this week come from Middlesex, St. Johnsbury, Thetford, West Brattleboro, Hinesburg and Bennington, and one from Minnesota.
