For almost a decade, the Autumn of Giving campaign has created tremendous impact in our community. Our generous Community Donors, Business and Media Partners and our signature Evening of Autumn Giving event allows us to raise funds that supports our Lend-A-Hand Grant program.
In 2019, we awarded 35 Lend-A-Hand Grants that equaled $73,082 to local nonprofit organizations’ programs in such diverse areas as veterans’ outreach, mental health services, wildlife education, homelessness prevention, youth services, and the arts.
This year, during this difficult time, we are pausing our traditional fundraising efforts. However, our grant program will continue this year, thanks to Adirondack Trust Company, and its decision to match last year’s grant amount. Our Advisory Committee looks forward to reviewing the grant applications we have received and will be announcing nonprofit grant recipients before year end.
With that, for the month of October, we will be sharing stories from various nonprofit Lend-A-Hand grant recipients to shine a spotlight on true heroes in our community. Hear from the nonprofits firsthand as they share how your support has bolstered their missions and helped them overcome significant challenges this year.
Check back throughout the month as we add new videos!
