SUNY Adirondack Fund


In an ever-changing economy, SUNY Adirondack plays a crucial role in providing responsive, relevant programs that strengthen the future leaders of our workforce.

The SUNY Adirondack Foundation remains committed to providing resources that have an immediate and beneficial impact on our students. To make this happen, we depend on the steadfast support of friends and donors like you.

Our alumni are executive directors of local nonprofits, as well as nurses in your local hospitals and health care facilities; they are CPAs filing your taxes and chefs in your favorite restaurants. Investing in SUNY Adirondack students today is ensuring the future of our local economy and community.

The SUNY Adirondack Fund provides direct support to students as well as programs that ensure every opportunity to earn a college degree.

  • Nearly 100 students received an unrestricted scholarship from the SUNY Adirondack Fund this fall. Unrestricted scholarships provide access and affordability to our most deserving students with unmet financial need. This is in addition to the 285 students who received restricted scholarships. With more than 80 percent of our students qualifying for financial aid, scholarships cover what aid does not.
  • Finish-In-2 has helped nearly 400 SUNY Adirondack students graduate in two years or less. Our Finish-In-2 incentive program creates opportunities for success by providing support that helps committed students graduate on time, allowing them to transfer to a four-year college or immediately enter the workforce.  
  • SUNY ADK Cares provided financial assistance and emergency loans to 70 students in the 2020-2021 academic year. When students find themselves in critical need, your support can help with food insecurity, housing or medical care, among other necessities, allowing students to focus on their education and complete their degrees.

Your collective generosity inspires our students to succeed. Your gift — of any size — provides immediate financial relief, clearing a pathway to success.

Thank you in advance for playing such an important role in the success of our students and for investing in the future and prosperity of our community.

Make a gift and invest in our community's future.
