Adirondack Foundation accepting grant applications

Generous Acts grants will support basic needs, educational pathways, economic vitality & civic engagement

Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2022


Community organizations are encouraged to submit grant applications to Adirondack Foundation’s Generous Acts program, which supports activities that address basic needs, educational pathways, economic development and civic engagement in the Adirondack region.

Nonprofits, schools and municipalities can submit applications starting Monday, Dec. 19; the deadline to apply is Feb. 1, 2023.

Generous Acts grantmaking is funded by the generosity of hundreds of donors from across the Adirondack region who want to position the Foundation to respond to community needs that surface every year.

“We’re amazed that the collective generosity of our Adirondack neighbors enabled us to hand out almost $1 million in Generous Acts grants last year,” said Cali Brooks, president and CEO of Adirondack Foundation. “With inflation and increased household costs affecting so many families this year, we’re hoping we can do the same for grantee organizations asking for support in this upcoming grant round. Thoughtful giving now will bring about ample Generous Acts grantmaking in the months ahead to meet the needs of the region.”

Since its inception, Generous Acts has awarded over $2.4 million in grants to organizations across the Adirondack region.
