Generous Acts at Adirondack Foundation is a force for good across the Adirondack Region thanks to unrestricted gifts from generous donors who love the Adirondacks and care about our communities. Grants made through Generous Acts have supported a wide array of program areas, with 57% directed to nonprofit organizations whose work falls under Human Well-Being, and served populations of all ages—from newborns and toddlers to teenagers, adults, and seniors.

Last year, we granted out over $300,000 through Generous Acts. This year, help us match or exceed that number with a gift, so we can continue to make good happen across the Adirondacks.
