    Fund Summary 
    The investment seeks to track the performance of a benchmark index that measures the investment return of large- and mid-capitalization stocks. The fund employs an indexing investment approach designed to track the performance of the FTSE4Good US Select Index. The index is composed of the stocks of companies that have been screened for certain social and environmental criteria by the index sponsor, which is independent of Vanguard. It attempts to replicate the index by investing all, or substantially all, of its assets in the stocks that make up the index.
