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.

Contact Adirondack Foundation Program Officer Andrea Grout at (518) 523-9904 or prior to completing your application. To view a video highlighting the impact of the Generous Acts Fund, including 2016 grant recipients, click here.
