Pivoting to Respond: How Your Support Made a Meaningful Difference

In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley cancelled its 2020 Garden Party. While we were sad not to gather with friends in the traditional way, we launched the Pivoting to Respond initiative to support and strengthen local nonprofits. 
With help from neighbors like you, Hudson Valley nonprofits received $258,600 in grant support. Here's a listing and breakdown of where these grants went:

The Arc Mid-Hudson, The Art Effect, Arts Mid-Hudson, Beacon Volunteer Ambulance Corps, Camp Herrlich, CAREERS Support Solutions, Catholic Charities of Orange, Sullivan, and Ulster, Center for Creative Education, Common Ground Farm, Cornell Cooperative Extension Dutchess County, CoveCare Center, Dutchess Outreach, Ecological Citizen's Project, Exodus Transitional Community, Family of Woodstock, Family Services, Garrison Art Center, Gateway to Entrepreneurial Tomorrow (ABClatino.net), Grace Smith House, Harambee, Hudson River Housing, Legal Services of the Hudson Valley, Library at the AJ Williams-Myers African Roots Center, Mental Health America of Dutchess County, Mental Health Association in Putnam County, Mental Health Association in Ulster County, Mid-Hudson Library System, North East Community Center, People's Place, Pine Hill Community CenterPoughkeepsie Farm Project, RDC Loaves and Fishes, Rebuilding Together Dutchess County, Red Hook Community Center, Resource Center for Accessible Living, Second Chance Foods, St. Thomas Episcopal Church Amenia Union NY, Ulster County Community Action Committee, Ulster Literacy Association, Underground Foundations, Unshattered, and Worker Justice Center of New York.

Here are a few of the stories made possible with your caring commitment:  

We need your support more than ever. As one friend told us: “Although it’s difficult to make a donation as a non-essential small business, it’s more difficult to think of our community without the arts, education, passion, and lifelines that our nonprofits provide. We must support them. Now.”  Your contribution will help uplift our community and pivot from emergency response to longterm recovery.

Thank you to these generous individuals and businesses for supporting our effort of Pivoting to Respond:
