ADIRONDACK TRUST COMPANY COMMUNITY FUND  ANNOUNCES 2013 AUTUMN OF GIVING MATCH CAMPAIGN

Saratoga Springs, New York....On October 1, The Adirondack Trust Company Community Fund  launched its month long Autumn of Giving Match Campaign: a community-wide initiative to raise funds and awareness, share the Community Fund’s story,  and engage the community as champions for local causes. To double its impact, the Adirondack Trust Company will match all donations made during the Campaign, and 100% of the funds raised will benefit local charities through its “Lend-A-Hand Grants” program.

Speaking on behalf of the ATC Advisory Committee, volunteer Chairperson, Joan Taylor, noted:  “We have been excited, and touched by the grants we have been able to distribute over the past two years.  This past June, Lend-A-Hand Grant recipient, After The Fire, Inc., was there to assist 32 Saratoga Springs residents left homeless due to a devastating row house fire. In addition to helping Fire survivors, other examples of ATC Funds at work include providing  nutritious meals for area families in need, empowering children through photography, and assisting a program to help talented, underprivileged students stay in school and excel. This campaign, the first of its kind, brings the ATC Community Fund, The Adirondack Trust Company, local business partners and our community’s nonprofits together to work to extend our ability to help others in our community. The Matching Campaign’s goal is to raise a minimum of $10,000, through individual donations, as well as our eighteen business partner’s generous promotions.”

The Matching Campaign provides three easy ways the community can get involved:
