Jul 12, 2007 — Adirondack Community Trust, or ACT, and the Bruce L. Crary Foundation have reached a milestone in Adirondack philanthropy by merging the two community institutions. ACT, in Lake Placid, manages endowment funds, including NCPR's Adirondack News Bureau Fund. The Crary Foundation has been awarding college scholarships to North Country students for over 35 years. It will continue to be based in Elizabethtown with its existing staff. Todd Moe spoke with ACT Executive Director Cali Brooks about the merger.
