Improving Our Communities by Giving Back
Our Mission: As concerned members of the communities we work in, The Hudson Gateway REALTOR® Foundation participates in qualified community-based charities who serve the housing, hunger, health, happiness, and humane needs of citizens everywhere.
The focus of the Foundation's efforts will be in Manhattan, Bronx, Westchester, Putnam, Rockland and Orange Counties.
Established in 2004 and relaunched in 2013, the Foundation has donated thousands of dollars to charities and non-profit organizations throughout the Hudson Valley.
