How it Works

Think about the Adirondacks.

Think about what’s important to you.

We’re from here—we know here. We can help you take care of the things that are important to you.

Working with Adirondack Foundation staff, you define your charitable goals. Together, we craft a plan that lays out your intentions and Adirondack Foundation’s responsibilities, whether you're giving to an existing fund like the Generous Acts Fund, or establishing your own fund.

Many donors include a fund at Adirondack Foundation in their estate plans as well. It’s also possible to start a fund with a bequest or other planned gift. Contact Melissa Eisinger at  mel@adirondackfoundation.org for more information.

When you set up your fund, you will also receive login ability for our Donor Central website, which gives you 24/7 access to your fund’s balance, the amount available to grant out, fund activity, and a link to Adirondack Gives, our crowdfunding site.

Adirondack Foundation provides administrative support, educational programming, financial and investment management, and publicity, when it is appropriate.

All you have to do is sit back and enjoy the pleasures of giving.

To set up a fund with Adirondack Foundation, or if you have any questions, email mel@adirondackfoundation.org or call (518) 523-9904.
