About this funder:
What is the Generous Acts Program?
The Generous Acts Program is a force for good that pools donations to amplify impact. Our Board of Trustees and staff, advised by an information network that spans the region, does the groundwork, research, and evaluation required to make effective grants — so our donors’ charitable dollars stretch for greatest impact.
Each gift, joined with the gifts of others, works to solve the most pressing needs in our region by empowering Adirondack Foundation to focus its efforts and grantmaking where philanthropy can make the biggest difference.
GAF is a flexible, ongoing resource for Adirondack communities. We cannot see into the future, but the fund will be here to respond to whatever circumstances arise.
Generous Acts Program grants are single-year and competitive. The Foundation is always looking for highly impactful and innovative opportunities to make grants. To help organizations determine whether to apply this year, we provide the following guidelines.
In previous years, Adirondack Foundation prioritized applications supporting early childhood development and quality of life for seniors. In 2019, the Foundation is broadening our focus to supporting one or more of these areas:
Human & Family Wellbeing
Providing basic needs for people such as food and housing, creating age-friendly opportunities for wellbeing, enhancing home and community-based services from early childhood development to elder care.
Promoting literacy, improving school readiness, enhancing educational experiences, developing work skills.
Economic & Community Vitality
Addressing economic challenges such as downtown revitalization, strengthening pathways toward upward economic mobility, bolstering community livability and vitality.
Typical grants will be in the $1,000 to $2,500 range. A limited number may be as high as $10,000.
