Leading for Today and Tomorrow

As the philanthropic hub for the Adirondack region, we play a unique role as both funder and nonprofit. Every day, we gain insights from relationships with nonprofits, local government leaders, and others on the ground to better understand pressing issues facing our neighbors and connect with generous donors to direct dollars where they can make a positive difference. 

The work of our strategic initiatives is founded in research and grounded in collaboration – and all had humble beginnings, from casual conversations and initial ideas that grew into larger leadership initiatives. As committed partners, we are proud to dedicate thought-leadership, social, and political capital toward building healthy, vibrant, thriving, and equitable communities across the Adirondacks.
