SUNY Adirondack Foundation launches Rally4ADK to benefit student emergency fund.

As the COVID-19 situation evolves every day, we know that SUNY Adirondack students have faced, and will continue to face, challenges and obstacles as they pursue their education. 

The SUNY Adirondack Foundation announces the launch of Rally4ADK, an opportunity for our campus community, alumni, donors and friends to come together to raise $50,000 for the college’s student emergency fund, the SUNY Adirondack Cares Fund. 

Thanks to a matching gift from the SUNY Impact Foundation, contributions will be matched 1:1 with funds provided by an anonymous donor up to $50,000, making it possible to provide up to $100,000 in aid for students facing emergency situations.

With your help, the SUNY Adirondack Cares Fund will be an immediate resource for our students as they navigate through this global crisis. The student emergency fund was originally created to help students overcome unforeseen hardships that put them at risk of not completing their education. Now, as the anticipated need for assistance grows, the dollars raised through Rally4ADK will help provide additional relief to students economically affected by the coronavirus and allow them to stay on track with their SUNY Adirondack education.

The college is scheduled to receive federal monies through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, and will distribute the funds directly to students. As demand exceeds available federal funding earmarked for SUNY Adirondack, the SUNY Adirondack Cares Fund will provide an additional source of aid for students facing economic challenges in the coming semesters.

College supporters can “rally for ADK” by contributing to the SUNY Adirondack Cares Fund. Every dollar raised through Rally4ADK will be used to help remove financial barriers that keep students from completing their education and will allow them to reach their full potential. 

Gifts made by June 30, 2020, will count towards the 1:1 matching gift from the SUNY Impact Foundation.

Thank you in advance for supporting our students. Your gift today will make a difference.
