HOPE for Youth Foundation

Our mission is to improve the lives of children in the Hudson Valley by raising funds for local charitable organizations that help children who need physical, emotional, educational, or enrichment support.

Help Us Help Children

How We Started

The HOPE For Youth Foundation was founded in 1986 in order to raise money for local charitable organizations in the Hudson Valley. Sales of the foundation’s long-range weather forecast calendars have helped support ill, disabled, and disadvantaged children.

How We've Grown

The HOPE For Youth Foundation has managed to raise close to $4.5 million dollars for a variety of different charitable organizations and has established scholarship programs at the Peekskill, Panas, Putnam Valley and Lakeland High Schools.

Where We're Going

The HOPE For Youth Foundation hopes to continue its efforts to provide greater support for reputable charitable organizations throughout the Hudson Valley region.
