MHV, along with its employees, participates in community events and supports many charities. We are committed to our community and the organizations that support the people of the Mid-Hudson Valley.

Our Year in Review

The MHV Community Relations Committee

 

A committee of employees reviews all requests and selects those that fit the defined criteria established and approved by the board. Not-for-profit organizations are welcome to submit funding requests and need to be registered as a 501(C)(3). Requests must be received in time to process and prepare the request. We recommend 8 weeks in advance, as the committee meets monthly.

To submit a funding request, please complete the form below or mail to:
MHVFCU, Community Relations, PO Box 1429, Kingston, NY 12402

Testimonials From Community Leaders

MHVFCU is a long-time community partner of the United Way of Ulster County. Staff have volunteered as board members, Loaned Executives, and allocations committee members. They run a fabulous United Way campaign in their workplace, field a team of volunteers for our annual Day of Caring, sponsor many events, and most recently donated some gently used office furniture! We are so lucky to have them as a corporate sponsor. Thanks so much for all you do for Ulster County!

Su Marcy, Vice President, United Way of Ulster County

MHV’s generous end of year donation to our organization was a great holiday surprise for us…MHV is helping us to continue our important work, now in our 30th year, which includes protecting our natural resources, and providing educational programming as well as recreational access to beautiful public preserves. Thank you MHV!
