Adirondack Foundation - Generous Acts Fund (GAF)
02/12/18 5:00 PM
Grants ranging from $1,000 to $2,500 to New York nonprofit organizations, schools, and municipalities to benefit communities within the Adirondack region. The funding is specifically intended to be used for the Foundation's current priority focus areas, improving the quality of life for the elderly and early childhood education. The Foundation will also review applications that might fill an unusual and pressing need that does not fit into the priority areas. Contact the Adirondack Foundation staff prior to completing your application.
Quality of life for elders: Applications will support programs or organizations that provide healthy lifestyle options for active retirees as well as elder care. Qualifying applications will address quality of life for senior citizens through community wellness, recreation, transportation, aging in place empowerment programs, home and community based services, and strategies that relieve isolation and loneliness.
Early childhood education: Applications will support the vision of our Adirondack Birth to Three Alliance--that all young children are healthy, learning, and thriving in families that are supported by a full complement of services and resources essential for successful development. Qualifying applications will promote literacy, school readiness, enhanced educational experiences, childhood nutrition and parental support.
