The Adirondack Trust Co. Community Fund will accept grant applications from eligible nonprofit charities until Sept. 30.
Grant information and application forms may be obtained from the Adirondack Trust Company Community Fund website at ATCCF.org/nonprofits.
The fund was established in 2009. Officials said the resulting yearly Lend-a-Hand grants help improve the quality of life and address issues of common concern in the area. In 2016, the Community Fund allocated $42,270 toward 23 Lend-a-Hand grants. The grants funded local, nonprofit organizations’ programs in such diverse areas as veterans’ outreach, mental health services, wildlife education, homelessness prevention, youth services, and the arts.
Grant recipients will be announced by the fund’s Independent Advisory Committee in December.
Over the past six years, the Community Fund has provided 101 grants in excess of $193,000.
