SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Adirondack Trust Company Community Fund has started its fifth annual Autumn of Giving campaign.
The event brings together community-minded individuals and businesses to raise donations to benefit the fund's annual charitable Lend-A-Hand grant program.
The campaign's goal is to raise a minimum of $50,000 in donations from the community. Contributions come from donations, fundraising initiatives sponsored by local business partners, and sponsorship/ticket sales for the signature event, An Evening of Autumn of Giving, which will be held Oct. 25 at Longfellow's.
The Adirondack Trust Company will match all money raised during the month of October.
Over the past six years, the community fund has awarded more than 101 grants, totaling more than $193,000, to nonprofit charities in Saratoga, Warren and Washington counties.
Online donations can be made on the company's community fund website, www.atccf.org.
Donations can be mailed to: ATC Community Fund, Attn: Kimberly Gallo, 31 Church St., Saratoga Springs, NY 12866.
Tickets to An Evening of Autumn of Giving can be purchased at www.atccf.org/events.
