The Hudson River Museum is proud to bring a top-quality museum experience to you and all in our region. Your gift to the Annual Fund provides the critical yet most difficult-to-find funding: general operating support.
Gifts to the Annual Fund provide sustenance to exhibitions, our signature Teaching Artist-in-Residence program for emerging artists, and an extensive schedule of enlightening education and public programs serving our local community.
Your tax-deductible donation to the HRM ensures that the Museum remains the leading venue as a community convener, a catalyst for change, and a connector of locally lived experiences to national and global issues.
You can also donate by calling (914) 963-4550 x217, or sending a check payable to the Hudson River Museum to 511 Warburton Avenue, Yonkers, NY 10701.
Development staff members are available to work with individual donors to create specialized opportunities for personally meaningful recognition.
Donors of gifts of $250 and above are recognized on our Annual Donor Board and Our Supporters page.
