Adirondack Foundation will make grants from the Generous Acts Fund for the third year in 2017 thanks to donors from across the region. The Foundation has made a commitment to increasing the fund over time.
Generous Acts Fund (GAF) grants are single-year and competitive; current priority focus areas are early childhood education and quality of life for elders.
Adirondack Foundation’s Grants Committee will also review applications that might fill an unusual and/or pressing need that falls outside our focus areas. This program will not fund capital campaigns.
Typical grants will be in the $1,000 to $2,500 range. A limited number may be as high as $10,000. Nonprofit organizations, schools and municipalities are eligible to apply.
Applications are now being accepted. The deadline to apply is 5 pm February 13, 2017.
Applications will be accepted only through the foundation’s Online Grants Manager. Click here to see the instructions.
