2022 marks Adirondack Foundation’s 25th anniversary

The Adirondack Foundation’s President & CEO, Cali Brooks, shared the following message to the foundation’s supporters, partners and friends as foundation staff celebrate their 25th anniversary this year.
“2022 marks The Adirondack Foundation’s 25th anniversary,” Brooks said. “As we celebrate and reflect on a quarter century of enhancing the lives of people in the Adirondacks through philanthropy, we are thankful for all of you – our supporters, partners, and grantees who have helped to make our work possible. We hope you’ll join us in celebrating this milestone throughout the year. Stay tuned for more and be sure to hold Friday, August 12th for our summer celebration of community at Heaven Hill Farm in Lake Placid. As we look back, we also look ahead to our next 25 years of working toward our vision for a thriving Adirondacks – one where communities are strong, just, and inclusive; family wellbeing is supported through quality healthcare and education; economic vitality is supported through workforce training and entrepreneurship; nature is protected and cared for; and arts and cultural opportunities are available to all. How can we set the stage for this next chapter in our history?
By working alongside our amazing partners to drive equitable prosperity in communities where our neighbors live, work, and raise their families. By constantly adapting to the evolving needs and opportunities of the region we serve. By being nimble and innovative day in and day out to ensure families have the tools and resources they need to overcome income, housing, and other barriers. And by bridging our knowledge, networks, and experience with the generosity of our neighbors to amplify community needs and accelerate change. As your community foundation, we play a unique role across the region. We hope you will join us in setting the stage for the years ahead.”
