By giving through your community foundation, you can use your gift to meet ever-changing community needs—including future needs that often cannot be anticipated at the time your gift is made. Your gift can target the causes and programs you care about most.

Hudson Community Foundation understands our community’s most pressing issues and can help you establish a fund to make an impact in areas of need or opportunity that are important to you.

Here are four great ways to turn your IRA into charitable-giving solutions and avoid taxes on qualified amounts you are required to take as an RMD:

Designated Fund—Helping organizations sustain and grow.

Support the good work of a specific nonprofit organization— any qualifying nonprofit charitable organization—by creating a specially Designated Fund. The community foundation will invest your gift for long-term growth and issue grants to your favorite nonprofit on a regular basis.


Scholarship funds provide donors the opportunities to offer financial support to students studying anywhere in America.

Hudson NOW or FOREVER Community Funds—Meeting ever-changing community needs.

Address a broad range of current and future needs. Hudson Community Foundation evaluates all aspects of community well-being—arts and culture, education, historical preservation, health and human services—and awards strategic grants to high-impact projects and programs.

Field of Interest Fund—Connecting personal values to high-impact opportunities.

Target gifts to the cause most important to you: arts, education, neighborhood revitalization, youth welfare and more. Hudson Community Foundation awards grants to community organizations and programs addressing your special interest area.
