Donate to the Lower Hudson Group

We greatly appreciate any and all donations. All of us are volunteers, and donations are a key ingredient in the mix that helps enhance our activism. Just some of the ways we use your money: Pursue vital environmental issues in our area and beyond; send a disadvantaged youngster to NY Department of Environmental Conservation summer camp for a week; pay for materials used in education, demonstrations, or communicating with public officials.

Tax-Deductible Donations

This kind of donation can be used for education and for legal expenses. It also helps Sierra Club pay for general communications such as our newsletter, meeting expenses, etc. and for fighting most environmental issues. This money can be deducted from your income for tax purposes.

1. To make a tax-deductible donation online, click here. Your donation will go through the Sierra Club Foundation and benefit our local group.

2. To make a tax-deductible donation by mail, make a check out to "Sierra Club Foundation", put "Lower Hudson Group" in the memo line, and send it to the Lower Hudson Group treasurer assistant Gale Pisha at 13 New Haven Avenue, Nanuet, NY 10954. Please include your phone and email address so that we can contact you for any questions.

Recurring (Sustaining) Tax-Deductible Donations

Many supporters of social, environmental, religious or other educational or charitable organizations use recurring donations, such as monthly. This is a way of demonstrating commitment for giving that assures regularity of support and is relatively painless for the donor and valuable for the receiving organization.

At this time, we are checking with the Sierra Club Foundation about how to be a monthly donor and have that tax deductible donation come to Lower Hudson Group, rather than go into the general Foundation funds, so please make your one-time tax deductible donation through the link above for now.

Thank you for considering making your donation a recurring one.

Matching Tax-Deductible Donations

Many employers offer to match employee contributions to non-profits. If your employer has such a program, please have them contact George Klein at (914) 772-3916 or lowerhudson@gmail.com to facilitate the verification and approval of your request for a matching donation.

Non-Tax-Deductible Donations

This kind of donation supports our effective citizen-based advocacy and lobbying efforts. For example, it helps Sierra Club support, or oppose, new laws, appropriations, or candidates. This money cannot be deducted from your income for tax purposes.
