The Hudson Valley Hospice Foundation

Established in 2000, Hudson Valley Hospice Foundation works to raise community awareness and funding in support of Hudson Valley Hospice's services, programs and mission to provide care, comfort and compassion to the men, women and children of Dutchess and Ulster Counties who are facing life limiting illnesses of themselves or of a loved one.  It is only with the support of our generous community, that we can continue to provide the vital and special kind of care that is Hudson Valley Hospice.

How You Can Help!

There are many ways you can support Hudson Valley Hospice Foundation, including:

Annual Giving

Your generous donation is welcome anytime your heart moves you and/or you can consider supporting us through our Annual Appeal, a direct mail request for general operating support.  Your gift can be made in memory of or in honor of someone special.


Sponsorship and/or attendance at Hudson Valley Hospice Foundation events is a way to get your businesses name out there, have some fun and support us!  Join us for our Princess Tea Party, Golf Tournament, Fall Event, Floral Magic and more.  For more information on our events, please click here.


Do you have a family foundation or fund or a connection to one?  Funding from private and public foundations for general support or funding for a specific program or project can make a significant difference.

Memorial Gifts

Memorial gifts are very special gifts, as they honor and recognize someone who has died.  It should be noted that Memorial Gifts can be made at any time and for anyone.  They do not have to be made in the name of a Hudson Valley Hospice patient or be for a recent death.

Community Gifts

Community gifts come in all different shapes and sizes.  Community donations can be the result of a group’s charitable efforts on behalf of the Foundation, such as a golf tournament or class project, or through a collection.

Memorial Garden Bricks

Remember and honor a loved one by purchasing a memorial brick in his or her name. The brick is embedded in our Memorial Garden pathways and dedicated at either our Spring or Fall Memorial Garden service.  Friends and families are invited to join us in the Memorial Garden for music by our gifted Music Therapy staff, readings by our devoted Chaplains, a reading of the names and light refreshments.  If you would like to purchase a Memorial Brick, please click here.

Trees of Life

An annual celebration of life, trees are put up in Dutchess and Ulster Counties with paper ornaments hung on them in memory of a loved one.  Porcelain ornaments are also available for donations of $50 or more.

Planned Giving 

Hudson Valley Hospice Foundation can also benefit from people who are planning for gifts today that will have a profound impact on our community in the future.  These gifts may take the form of bequests, charitable remainder trusts, life insurance or other types of charitable planned gifts and give you the freedom to stipulate a specific amount or a percentage of your estate or name a specific asset to be given to Hudson Valley Hospice Foundation.
