Building Strong Communities Across the Adirondacks
What makes a strong community? How does philanthropy factor into it? At Adirondack Foundation, we ask ourselves these questions every day. There is no single answer, and the components of strong and healthy communities are rarely linear. That’s why, as a community foundation, we take a “whole community” approach to amplify all that is good about the Adirondacks.

Collaborating for Good Across the Adirondacks
Community foundations are unique for the role they play in inspiring place-based philanthropy in the region they serve and acting as cornerstones for good through collaboration and partnerships. We are proud to play this role for the Adirondack region – to serve as the connective tissue between people and the causes they care about, nonprofit organizations and the communities they serve, and fellow funders and shared priorities. Learn more about our community impact and see an example in action from the Adirondack Birth To Three Alliance in the video below...
