Perhaps you’ve been considering establishing a private foundation.  In the traditional form, setup and maintenance are complex and expensive.  But Hudson Community Foundation, through our Donor Advised Fund program, offers an alternative that makes it cost effective and available to charitable-minded individuals like you.  You can give cash, stocks, real estate or life insurance and take immediate tax deductions, giving you time to evaluate the charities of your choice – on your own timetable – all while keeping your trusted financial advisor involved from start to finish.  And best of all, the customary fees stay right here in Hudson, helping to support this valuable community resource.
