Individual Giving

Your generosity enables us to offer immediate resources that directly support programs, art exhibitions, planetarium shows, and gives thousands of children educational opportunities to cultivate a respect for our region, our history, our planet, and our universe.


Corporate Matching

Double your support of the HRM with a Corporate Matching Gift. Check with your HR Department to see if your company matches charitable donations. If so, send a Matching Gift Form to Hudson River Museum, 511 Warburton Avenue, Yonkers, NY, 10701, or contact Amanda Sheff.

Planned Giving

You can leave a lasting legacy through a planned gift to the Hudson River Museum. By including the Museum in your estate plans, you are helping to ensure a vital and secure future for the Museum, and providing endless opportunities for engaging with art and science, inspiring visitors for generations to come, and making a meaningful impact on our community.

Making a planned gift—whether by including a bequest to the Museum in your will or by naming the HRM as the beneficiary of a charitable remainder trust, life insurance policy, or retirement fund—provides essential support for the Museum for years to come.

Many individuals have strengthened the Hudson River Museum with their own bequests, large and small. You too can contribute to the HRM by making your own planned gift.

For more information, please contact Samantha Hoover.
