Why Through HCF?
The Gift of a Lifetime – Your Enduring Legacy
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 now have a simple, smart and meaningful way to create an enduring legacy that will benefit the community for generations to come.
- A means of leaving an indelible mark on Hudson by supporting its most creative thinking as it addresses the challenges ahead.
- A way to know that your life is helping to make the world a better place.
- A way to ensure that you, or someone you love, will be remembered.
The Satisfaction of a Well-Made Plan
However you approach setting up your fund at HCF, you will enjoy knowing that a portion of the accumulated assets of a lifetime may forever benefit this community of Hudson, and will do so in your name or the name of a loved one.
You will know that administrative and investment management costs have been minimized so that the gift you have so generously entrusted will have maximum impact over time.
But, perhaps most importantly, you will have the special satisfaction of knowing you have done your part to make the world a little better. Or, simply put, that your life’s efforts have made a difference.
