Standish Family Fund


Established in 2003, the Standish Family Fund’s goal is to strengthen the region that has been our family’s home for generations. The Fund focuses on education and youth, two areas with the greatest potential to shape the future of the Capital Region.

Annually, the Standish Family Fund makes two types of grants. Mini Grants consider proposals of less than $1,000 and are advised by the third generation of the Standish family. Older members of the Standish family advise grants greater than $1,000

We welcome proposals from not-for-profit organizations serving Albany, Rensselaer, Saratoga, and Schenectady counties by furthering education or improving the quality of life of our region’s youth. For more detailed information, view our application process.

The Standish Family Fund is a donor Advised Fund of The Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region.
