The Cloudsplitter Foundation is dedicated to improving the future for the flora, fauna, communities, and people of the Adirondacks.
These grants are made at the sole discretion of our director. They are primarily for urgent needs that arise between grant review meetings.
Foundation areas of interest
Priority grants will:
Have a clear strategic purpose, leverage (e.g., attracting other funders)
Generate maximum environmental or community returns
Help under-served populations and those with the greatest need
Be collaborative (between organizations and/or government)
Go to prior grantees who have performed against their grant criteria
Address the stresses on our local food supply, healthcare, childcare, and small businesses
Grant requests for capital campaigns will be regarded more favorably if they are a matching grant and the resulting structure or facility has a significant impact on the community.
Lowest priority will be given to grants seeking to build an endowment or reserves.
