Hudson Valley Foundation for Youth Health Awarded Grant for 3rd Annual Nonprofit Meetup
Posted May 8, 2019
The Hudson Valley Foundation for Youth Health (HVFYH) has been awarded a $1,000 grant from the Ulster Savings Charitable Foundation to support the work they do to empower children and teens to make healthful choices. The donation will be used for the 3rd Annual Nonprofit Meetup which will be held on October 24, 2019 at the Andy Murphy Midtown Neighborhood Center.
“The Meetup provides leadership, intern, and volunteer opportunities, and scholarship information for high school students by connecting them to nonprofits. This event also helps students to complete their community service hours for graduation. Plus, students from the Ulster BOCES Pathways Academy get professional event management experiences,” said Barbara Mansfield, HVFYH Chair. “We deeply appreciate the support we have received from Ulster for this event,” she added.
The Hudson Valley Foundation for Youth Health provides grants to nonprofits serving youth in Ulster, Delaware, Greene, Columbia, and northern Dutchess counties. To date the Meetup has averaged 325 students, with each student averaging about 40 minutes in attendance. A further goal for this year is to increase the number of students who attend.
The Ulster Savings Charitable Foundation was formed in 2003 to assist the local community in areas of housing, education, and human services.
