Charitable Requests

Requests for support must be made online using one of the forms below.

Hudson Valley Credit Union is deeply vested in our region and proud to support many local charitable organizations - both monetarily and through volunteerism. Hudson Valley employees currently volunteer their time at more than 35 local organizations.

If your Section 501c(3) non-profit organization also contributes towards the quality of life or economic health in the Hudson Valley, and is located in Albany, Columbia, Dutchess, Greene, Orange, Putnam, Rensselaer, Rockland, Saratoga, Schenectady, Ulster, or Westchester County, then we’d like to learn more about how we might help your efforts.

Sponsorship support can be requested for programs and events where the proceeds benefit:

  • The Arts and Sciences

Grant support can be considered for local organizations focused on:

Important Notes for Submitting Requests

  • Before making any online request, please review our checklist of items you will need to apply. Each request must be completed thoroughly in one entry. The system does not allow you to save requests and return to complete at a later date. 
  • Sponsorship requests may take 30-60 days for review and are considered on a first-come, first-serve basis throughout the calendar year.
  • Grant requests for 2024 will be accepted from February 1 – March 15 and reviewed by a committee for decisions by June 30.
