Hudson Gateway Realtor Foundation Donates Nearly $33,000 to 22 Area Charities, Non-Profits in 2021
WHITE PLAINS—The Hudson Gateway Realtor Foundation, the charitable arm of the Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors, reported it had donated a total of $32,800 to 22 charities and non-profit organizations throughout the Hudson Valley and beyond in 2021.
As it enters its ninth year of fundraising, the foundation is gearing up for another successful year of providing financial assistance to those organizations dedicated to helping the needy in the New York metro area and elsewhere.
“While the pandemic did substantially limit our live fundraising activities during 2020, we are happy that we were still able to provide donations to all of the wonderful non-profit organizations that continue to make a difference in the lives of individuals and families in our communities,” said Maryann Tercasio, president of the Hudson Gateway Realtor Foundation. “We are extremely grateful for the generosity of our Realtor members, colleagues, and sponsors who made all of these donations possible, especially during COVID.” All monies raised during 2020 were earmarked for 2021 donations.
The Foundation’s 2021 events, which included a series of its popular live Pub Nights during the last six months of the year, will go toward its 2022 donations. “We are thrilled that we were finally able to begin having live events again last summer and we’re looking forward to a very successful 2022,” added Bonnie Koff, chair of the HGRF Fundraising Committee.
