SUNY Adirondack Foundation
You have the power to change the future.
Our Mission Statement
The SUNY Adirondack Foundation is a 501(c)3 charitable organization 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 dwarf’s the Foundation’s available funds.
Focusing on additional sources of scholarship aid is 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.
The Foundation complies with the Donor Bill of Rights.
Your impact on students' lives
"I would like to thank the SUNY Adirondack Foundation for making the Academic Excellence Scholarship possible...Plans for my future include earning a degree in biology and becoming a veterinarian. I have many years of school left ahead of me, and this scholarship has helped me immensely. Financially, becoming a doctor is very demanding and this scholarship has allowed me to receive a wonderful education without having to worry about loans or debts. These first two years of my collegiate career will have given me the head start that I need in order to achieve my goals."

" It is a pleasure to attend SUNY Adirondack. As a returning student I was quite nervous about going back to school. From my first day on campus I have been blown away by my professors and the staff. They are not only knowledgeable and extremely talented, but they want their students to succeed and do well....Again, I would like to thank you for selecting me to receive this award, It has encouraged me to keep on giving 100% to my sutdies, and it has made me so proud. My children see their mom work hard at something and receive recognition."

"Throughout the fall and spring semesters in the classes you helped provide for, I gradually became the confident, organized, independent young lady I am today...I look forward to continuing my journey at SUNY Adirondack, and without you I don't believe that would be possible"
