Our Mission Statement
The SUNY Adirondack Foundation is a 501(c) 3 charitable corporation established in 1983. The Foundation's primary function is to provide financial support to the college and its students. Funds are raised and distributed as student scholarships, faculty/staff professional development grants and to support College related special projects.
The vast majority of available funds go to student scholarships. Awards are made based upon academic achievement and financial need. Each year, despite a growing ability to help, the unmet student financial need dwarfs the Foundation's available funds. Focusing on additional sources of scholarship aid is therefore a priority for the Foundation. The Foundation builds its assets through annual giving, memorial gifts, special fundraising events, planned giving and bequests. With one eye always on the future, the Foundation's Board of Directors seeks to build a strong endowment as well as raise funds to cover its annual operating budget.
