The mission of the Hudson Community Foundation is to enhance the quality of life in Hudson by increasing charitable giving, educating and connecting donors to community needs and leading on community issues.
Donor Advised Funds
Hudson Community Foundation provides a simple and flexible way for individuals to manage charitable giving while maximizing impact and minimizing tax burdens and record keeping.
Hudson NOW Fund
This unrestricted fund allows Hudson Community Foundation to collectively meet immediate and changing needs in the Hudson community.
Hudson FOREVER Fund
This fund’s purpose is to provide long term charitable giving to the Hudson community. It is the growth of this fund that ensures that the Hudson Community Foundation will have unrestricted resources available to address needs as well as those unforeseen in the future.
The David Hudson Legacy Society
The David Hudson Legacy Society honors those who have included a planned gift to any of the current funds or will use a planned gift to establish a fund at Hudson Community Foundation.
Charitable funds are available at a number of institutions, but not all funds are alike. Many funds are sponsored by financial services companies, which limit your choices. But Hudson Community Foundation is truly independent. Since we don’t sell products, our independence gives you – and your financial advisor – maximum objectivity. And unlike most other programs, HCF encourages your family to be involved with your charitable giving. In fact, we have residents who have set up funds in their family’s name, making it a point to involve their children and grandchildren when selecting charitable causes. We can’t think of a better way to pass along your values of giving back.
You have been fortunate. You have enjoyed success and managed your assets prudently. And you feel strongly that those resources, built carefully over a lifetime through rigorous enterprise and thoughtful investment should be used for some worthy purpose.
After the needs of your family are met, you give annually to support those organizations and causes you believe in. But now you are in a financial position that enables you to do something more. You would like the satisfaction of making a lasting impact upon your community with the knowledge that what you are now able to do with a position of your accumulated resources is clear recognition of your achievements – not merely of a year but of a lifetime.
You now have a simple, smart and meaningful way to create an enduring legacy that will benefit the community for generations to come. HCF is:
