Charitable Foundation Accepting Grant Applications

The Bank of Greene County’s Charitable Foundation is now accepting grant applications from eligible organizations through January 15, 2017.

The Foundation supports qualifying non-profit organizations that foster education, health and wellness, social and civic services, culture and the arts, and affordable housing.

Foundation and Bank President & CEO, Donald Gibson, stated:  “It is my pleasure to report this year’s grant awards are scheduled to be our largest ever, approximately $125,000. Since its inception in 1998, the Foundation has awarded grants totaling over $1.1 million!  Almost all of the money has benefited local non-profit organizations that improve the quality of life in our Hudson Valley market area of Greene, Columbia, Albany & Ulster counties.”

Approved grant applicants can expect to receive their grant money after May 1, 2017.

Interested organizations can obtain more information on the grant application process from the Charitable Giving page of the Bank’s website.  Headquartered in Catskill, New York, the Bank provides full-service community based banking in the Hudson Valley.
