What is Generous Acts? A Collective Force for Good in the Adirondacks

Generous Acts at Adirondack Foundation is a force for good, backed by generous donors who care deeply about local communities. Since 2014, Generous Acts has awarded $2 million in grants to nonprofits, schools, and community-based organizations. You can see a list of 2021 grants here

So, how does it work? It provides a way for donors to become part of something big by giving with Adirondack Foundation. The outcome is powerful – collective generosity coming together to cast a meaningful net of support for Adirondack communities.

Love inspires us to give back to the people and places we care about most…
