The Adirondack Garden Club offers three grants:
The Ellen Lea Paine Memorial Nature Fund was established in 2005 to give financial assistance to individuals and not-for-profit organizations, including schools, involved in programs whose purpose is to study, protect, and enjoy the natural environment within the Adirondack Park. These requests are considered and distributed by the ELP Committee. The maximum amount per Ellen Lea Paine Memorial Nature Fund grant is $1500.
The 1928 AGC Founders Fund was established in the 1980s to give grants to not-for-profit organizations, including schools, involved in programs whose purpose is to create an impact in a specific area within the Adirondack environment. These requests are reviewed by the Executive Committee for approval and distribution.
The Francesca Paine Irwin Conservation Fund was created in 2013 and is used for project-based funding requests that are focused on conservation. These requests are reviewed by the Conservation Committee and forwarded to the Executive Committee for approval and distribution.
