Employee Giving

The commitment and passion of Hudson Valley's faculty and staff are a great part of what makes this a true community college.

We know that many students need additional support both inside and outside of the classroom to succeed. An excellent way to help these students  is through donations to the college's Employee Giving Campaign.

Donations to the Employee Campaign are part of the Annual Fund, unless directed otherwise. Every penny raised from the employee campaign will be directly applied to college initiatives.

Initiatives have included:

  • scholarships for students at Hudson Valley Community College;
  • the purchase of Caldecott Medal winning books for the Early Childhood Education program;
  • pedestal maps and recycling bins;
  • sound equipment for the Maureen Stapleton Theatre and;
  • emergency assistance to students in crisis.
