For Campaign Donors

Thank you for considering a gift to Adirondack Foundation through Adirondack Gives.  100% of your gift will be directed to the campaign you have designated. Adirondack Foundation validates the 501(c)3 status of organizations using Adirondack Gives as a fundraising tool but does not endorse or evaluate any campaign. Adirondack Foundation reserves the right to decline a campaign for any reason. 

First off: thank you. If you’re reading this, it probably means you’re a generous person. We hope you find a fun, inspiring campaign to support on Adirondack Gives.

I clicked donate. What should I expect?

Check your email! We will send you two messages:

  1. A transaction receipt from Authorize, our credit card processor. This is a simple receipt to confirm your donation. If you used PayPal, you’ll receive a similar message.
  2. A tax receipt letter from Adirondack Foundation. This proves that you received no gifts or services in exchange for your donation, and that your gift is tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. Don’t lose this one! Print it out for your records!

My donation is safe and secure, right?

Absolutely. Both of our processors, Authorize and PayPal, maintain the highest industry security standards.

Can my gift be refunded?

Gifts are refundable at Adirondack Foundation’s discretion. We cover all transaction  fees so that 100 percent of your donation goes to the campaign it is intended for. Refunds are issued only when a donor has made a mistake, or in the rare event that a campaign doesn’t surpass the $250 minimum.
