Host an Event for HVCS

Host an Event for HVCSYou can be a fundraising superstar!

Hudson Valley Community Services (HVCS) works with over 3,000 low-income Hudson Valley residents who live with chronic diseases. They struggle with conditions like HIV/AIDS, substance abuse, mental health issues, diabetes, hepatitis C, liver and kidney disease, and many more illnesses.

Join us in our mission to help and support your neighbors in need. Throw a fundraising event for one of our areas of need and know that you’ve made a real change in your community.

You don’t have to be wealthy or donate a large amount to make a difference. All it takes is the desire to pitch in and an idea for a gathering. Organizing your friends, family and community and asking them to contribute small amounts can really add up!


Help HVCS by organizing:

  • Potluck dinners
  • Walks, hikes or bike rides
  • Bake sales
  • Loose change collections
  • Charity days at your business: collect donations from employees or donate a percentage of all sales
  • Food drives
  • Paint-and-sip parties
  • Guest bartender nights
  • Turn a special occasion into a fundraiser! If you’re having a birthday, anniversary, religious celebration, or wedding, why not consider asking guests to bring a donation for HVCS in lieu of gifts?
  • The possibilities are endless!


  • Go with what you know: Use your existing skills, resources and connections
  • Share your passion for what HVCS does for the region
  • An event of any size can be a great success!
