The Dutchess County Chapter of SCORE was founded in 1964 as Charter Chapter 59. We are an active chapter and have more than 20 volunteers.

The counselors of Dutchess County SCORE are experienced business owners or managers who volunteer their experience and knowledge to help small business owners and potential small business owners achieve success.

Client service is the objective of Dutchess County SCORE and our volunteer business counselors are dedicated to providing the best possible service. Face-to-face or online, the counselors of Dutchess County SCORE are able and willing to aid in the success of small business. Our service is free and confidential.

We have three locations in Dutchess County where our counselors can meet you to help evaluate a business idea or plan, stimulate business growth, and ensure long-term stability. To make an appointment at any location, call 845-454-1700 x1021.
