Kendal’s philosophy of philanthropy dates back over 40 years when community-minded people made a gift for the establishment of the first Kendal community outside Philadelphia. This tradition continues at Kendal on Hudson.

Gifts to Kendal at Hudson, a not-for-profit organization (EIN-13-3971396), support the goals of our community guided by our Values and Practices, including those of equality, community and social responsibility. Charitable giving for the benefit of Kendal on Hudson provides an opportunity for our contributors to play a meaningful role in Kendal’s spirit of generosity, unique to the interests and preferences of each contributor.

Since opening in 2005, generous donations have enabled the expansion of our fitness programs, increased tuition support for eligible staff members, provided outreach to our community public schools and many other important initiatives.

Why Donate to Kendal on Hudson?

Kendal on Hudson’s philanthropy supports:

  • Residents who, through no fault of their own, find themselves unable to meet their monthly fees.
  • Enhancements to the Health Center, in the context of our special commitment to meeting the needs of the “frailest among us” and to support wellness programs for our community.
  • Kendal staff in times of family crises and emergencies; and to offer them expanded education and professional advancement which may not otherwise be affordable.
  • Grant-making programs, services and research that seek to address and enhance healthy aging in the wider community. Kendal works collaboratively with the Resident Council, which has focused on social needs in the local area in its charitable activities.
