The Adirondack Foundation was founded in 1997 and serves to strengthen the community through philanthropy. This organization collects donations, then pools the funds together for investment. The income is then repurposed through grants, which are then distributed to nonprofit organizations within the community. The Adirondack Foundation also hosts one of the best and most affordable professional development workshop series in the country. For more information, click here!
