Is there a more clear-cut definition of resilience than the ability of Hudson Valley non-profits to continue to serve their communities throughout 2020?
 
The COVID-19 pandemic placed a strain on local non-profits like they’ve never felt. Fundraising opportunities vanished, staff was reduced, and the need was magnified. They did not waver, though, and maintained programs and services to the best of their abilities.
 
Mid-Hudson Valley Federal Credit Union (MHV) knew the area needed a far-reaching impact. The credit union launched its Season of Giving in early December. Throughout the month, we worked behind the scenes to connect with 31 Hudson Valley non-profits, surprising them with $1,000 each to use as they needed. Recipients were also given the opportunity to talk about their work; those recordings will be shared via MHV’s social media.
 
To celebrate the $31,000 give-back, we also held a contest for the community, giving away four cash prizes to help spread the word about the Season of Giving.
 
"We are honored to give back to local non-profits throughout the Hudson Valley this year as part of our Season of Giving,” says Michael Mattone, VP of Community Impact at MHV. “The work they have done to serve our community during these uniquely challenging times is inspiring, and we hope our donation and recognition of their efforts compels others in our community to give local this holiday season."
