While our rural communities unquestionably face a number of challenges, they also have incredible stories to share...

Our #ruraliscool mantra at the Foundation for Rural Service is to shed light on these stories of heart, innovation and collaboration.  We know a stronger, more sustainable rural America is possible—and these stories are just some of the reasons why. Check back to our #ruraliscool page for regular updates—or use #ruraliscool on social media to share your story about why rural America matters and is worth investing in and fighting for!


Investing in Rural America

“Our investment in our communities, both the soft investment from FRS and the hard investment from what we invest in our broadband networks, makes innovation possible anywhere. It is us giving back to our communities.”
