Annual Fund

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.

HRM is ever-changing, ever-evolving, and always eager to create exciting and inspiring experiences. Help us plant seeds for fertile ground that allows our exhibitions, programs, and the people who participate in them, to thrive and grow.
