The Ulster Savings Charitable Foundation recently had the pleasure of awarding grants to some amazing nonprofit organizations in the Poughkeepsie area.  The following are summaries of each grant:
Nonprofit (recipient) Name:
United Way of the Dutchess-Orange Region
Grant amount:
$5,000.00
Purpose of grant:
The Charitable Foundation’s grant will support the United Way’s Early Education Coalition program, which aims to fight the low levels of childhood literacy in Dutchess and Orange counties by collaborating with other nonprofits, businesses, public sector agencies and community members to share resources, develop best practices and find creative solutions to serve the greater community.

Nonprofit (recipient) Name:
Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum
Grant amount:
$5,000.00
Purpose of grant:
The Charitable Foundation’s grant will support the MHCM’s implementation of “Museums for All”, an initiative designed to ensure that every child and family has access to high-quality children’s museum experiences by implementing a permanent, reduced admission for any family presenting an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card and a valid photo ID.  The “Museums for All” initiative was created by the Association of Children’s Museums and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.  The Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum has a goal that within three (3) years, 10% of their annual visitation will be by families from Ulster, Dutchess and Orange counties utilizing the “Museums for All” program.

Nonprofit (recipient) Name:
Hudson River Housing, Inc.
Grant amount:
$10,000.00
Purpose of grant:
The Charitable Foundation’s grant will supplement Hudson River Housing’s (HRH) outreach, materials and personnel for their Financial Fitness program.  This program aims to improve the financial stability among participants through a group educational workshop on the importance of eliminating debt, building a credit history and increasing savings.  Class topics include proper income calculation, tracking of one’s household spending, why credit is important and how to improve one’s credit rating.
