Many people care about Hudson and would like to share resources with it in a lasting way, but feel they are can’t make a difference alone. For such people the Hudson Community Fund can be of service. The HCF can give you the satisfaction of being charitable and knowing your gift will be put to good use in the community.
Founded in 1999, the HCF focused efforts to provide funding in the areas of education, human services, civic projects, youth, and the environment. Through our affiliation with the St. Croix Valley Foundation, HCF enjoys a strong breath of resources, experienced staff and other benefits.
How does a foundation like ours work? Community foundations historically create a pool of donors with diverse interests from diverse backgrounds who have a common goal of enhancing the quality of life in their community. Their contributions provide for a long-term investment where assets can grow in what is called a permanent endowment. Earnings from these assets are then given back to the community in the form of grants. This is how we use our Community Needs Fund.
We are the benefits of working with HCF? Well, we offers donors simplicity and flexibility in charitable giving, maximum tax advantages and the knowledge that their gift will benefit their community in perpetuity. A community foundation exists to help create a healthy and vital community in which all people have the opportunity to enhance the quality of their lives. HCF ensures this is happening in Hudson.
