"As lifelong summer visitors to the Adirondacks, we know that the experience we treasure would not be possible without the support of the Adirondack community.  LivingADK serves a critical role in identifying and developing programs to keep the community healthy and vibrant and we are grateful for the opportunity to support the LivingADK mission now and in the future."

Over the years, LivingADK has created a very important working relationship with The Community Foundation of Herkimer & Oneida Counties ("The Community Foundation").  The Community Foundation has not only awarded LivingADK with supportive grants for meaningful projects within the west central Adirondacks, but LivingADK is now investing our own funds within The Community Foundation's investment opportunities to grow supportive capital allowing us to continue the valuable work within our region for years to come.  Your legacy gifts will be managed by a trusted community foundation partner with many years of success behind them.  Feel free to visit The Community Foundation of Herkimer & Oneida Counties's website at foundationhoc.org for more information.
