Adirondack Trust Seeks Grant Applications

SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Adirondack Trust Company Community Fund has begun to accept grant applications from eligible nonprofit charities headquartered in the Saratoga, Warren and Washington County areas. The grant window is open from April 1 to September 25.

The fund was established in 2009 to build an endowment that acts as a perpetual source of funding for a broad array of nonprofit organizations that improve the quality of life in the community, and to assist them in addressing issues of common concern. The fund also seeks to foster a community spirit of giving by providing donors with unique and flexible ways to manage charitable donations.

In 2016, the Community Fund awarded $42,270 in “Lend-a-Hand” grants to 23 local organizations, supporting such diverse programs as veteran’s outreach, mental health services, wildlife education, homelessness prevention, youth services and the arts.

Grant information and application forms may be obtained from the Adirondack Trust Company Community Fund website at www.atccf.org/nonprofits. An independent advisory committee will announce the recipients in December.
