With deep roots in the Hudson Valley, we understand the important role that charitable giving plays in helping the communities we serve.
Currently, we offer two programs to give back: through our Ulster Savings Charitable Foundation and the Ulster Savings Community Donation Program. Since 2001, we've given a combined total of over $9 million to nonprofit organizations throughout the Hudson Valley!

While funded through Ulster Savings Bank, the Ulster Savings Charitable Foundation is operated separately based on a mission to assist the community in the areas of:
