Individual Giving

In this challenging and unprecedented time, the Hudson River Museum is more committed than ever to our community.

We continue our work to build creativity and connection with our audiences, and we are moved by the thoughtfulness and caring that we are witnessing each day.

You can support the Museum by becoming a Member, renewing or upgrading your membership, and contributing to the Annual Fund, which provides much-needed general operating support during this critical time.

Please consider a tax-deductible donation in support of our mission to engage, inspire, and connect diverse communities through the power of the arts, sciences, and history.

Any amount makes a difference. Help keep the Museum and our community strong!

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.

The HRM is much more than a physical building; it is a forum for sharing powerful ideas and making sense of what’s happening in the world. But we can’t do it without you!

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 Nancy DeNatale.

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.
