About this funder:



Community Funds provide an ongoing, dependable philanthropic resource for the specific geographic areas they serve. Each Community Fund has a committee of active, well connected individuals that works to raise charitable dollars to grow the funds. The committees review and recommend grants through a competitive process. These community fund committee members expand our network of ambassadors and introduce Adirondack Foundation to the greater Adirondack community.
