Christopher Emmet Hallowell Fund

The Christopher Emmet Hallowell (CEH) Fund is an endowment fund established to support families caring for severely ill children and young adults in the Adirondack region  (Clinton, Essex & Franklin Counties) of New York State. The fund seeks to perpetuate Christopher's legacy by providing financial assistance to families for incidental and unexpected expenses while caring for a child or young adult with a severe illness, thus allowing family members to provide the same continuous love and support that so greatly impacted the quality of Christopher's life.

Grants typically range between $2,000-$3,500.  For more background information and eligibility requirements for the fund, click here.

If you meet the eiligibility requirements and are ready to apply, please use our Online Grants Manager to apply.

For grant recipients of $600 and up, it is required to complete a form W-9.

The advisors of the Christopher Emmet Hallowell Fund and Adirondack Foundation are interested in hearing how the grant funds assist the families.
