The Hudson Gateway REALTOR® Foundation, the charitable arm of the Hudson Gateway Association of REALTORS®, is accepting applications from lower Hudson Valley 501 (c) (3) charities and non-profit organizations interested in obtaining funds for their organization or for specific events.
As concerned members of the communities, the Hudson Gateway REALTOR® Foundation participates in qualified community-based charities who service the housing, hunger, health, happiness, and humane needs within Westchester, Putnam, Rockland, Orange, and Bronx Counties.
Established in 2004 and relaunched in 2013, the Foundation has donated thousands of dollars to charities such as Make-A-Wish Hudson Valley, Habitat for Humanity, the Westchester Coalition for the Hungry and Homeless and many others. While the Foundation has held smaller events and contributed to local non-profit organizations in the past, last September marked its inaugural Gala at the Glen Island Harbour Club in New Rochelle. The Gala raised over $15,000 and a similar event is being planned for this year.
“We believe it is so important now to really put the Foundation on the map and make everyone aware of the great work being accomplished by charities and non-profit groups throughout the communities that we serve,” said Richard Haggerty, HGAR CEO. “We look forward to receiving applications from many of these wonderful organizations that really make a difference in the lives of our Hudson Valley residents.”
An earlier “Pub Night” event at Pax Romana in White Plains raised over $7,000 for the Foundation, and other “Pub Nights” will be taking place in Putnam, Rockland and Orange counties throughout the year.
