Contributing To Our Annual Fund Campaign Helps Support Our Funding For The Greatest Needs in Hudson.

The Hudson Community Foundation (HCF) Annual Fund receives gifts from people like you to make a big impact on the critical needs of Hudsonites. This year, we are supporting vital human services through our grants to organizations that included Greenleaf Family Center for adolescent suicide prevention programs in local schools, Habitat for Humanity for homes being built by Hudson volunteers, Hudson City Schools Drug Free Club of America program GriefCare Place providing grief counseling for their no cost programs. A gift to the HCF Annual Fund is an easy and powerful way to help many organizations doing good locally. 

With your help, we can say “Yes!” to more projects that make life better in Hudson. 


You choose how we put your gift to work

Four Easy Ways to Give: 

  • By credit card: See below links 
  • Send a check: Make it out to Hudson Community Foundation “Annual Fund” in the memo line. Mail it to P.O. Box 944, Hudson, OH 44236. 
  • Transfer your gift: If you have a donor-advised fund, you can transfer a gift from your fund.  
  • Give from your IRA: Under the “charitable IRA rollover” provision, donors aged 72 and older may direct contributions from an IRA to our Hudson Community Foundation Annual Fund, excluding them from taxable income (up to $100,000), and counting them towards the required minimum distribution. As the provision excludes contributions to donor-advised funds or private foundations, this is a great way to take advantage of this tax benefit while supporting local nonprofits. 
  • Don’t forget to check if your employer makes matching gifts! Some companies will double or triple your contribution, increasing the impact of your gift.
