Tax deductible contributions to Rhinebeck Responds are collected and managed through a special interest fund of the Community Foundations for the Hudson Valley.
Currently, Rhinebeck Responds is prioritizing financial support in two areas of need: (1) individuals and families who are “outside the safety net” with no access to government support programs and (2) small businesses in the Rhinebeck area that need help sustaining their operations due to the economic shutdown and the period of recovery.
You can also contribute by mailing a check made out to Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley with ‘Rhinebeck Responds’ in the memo line. Send your check to
Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley
80 Washington Street, Suite 201
Poughkeepsie, NY 12601
Rhinebeck Responds and the Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley also gladly accept wire transfers, gifts of appreciated securities and other forms of charitable support.
