Get Involved


As a 501 C 6 membership organization, your support of the Grant Professionals of Lower Hudson is considered a trade/business deduction on your federal income tax return. 


We graciously accept the following gifts:


* Sponsorships of our Meet the Funders Panel Discussion – GPLH hosts an annual Meet the Funders event. We offer sponsorships, which offset event expenses.

* Sponsorships of our Quarterly Workshops – GPLH hosts four quarterly education events annually. We welcome a $100 donation to offset the cost of refreshments for one event.

* Space Donation – GPLH seeks free space to hold our quarterly education meetings in.

* Gifts-in-Kind – Gifts and services given in-kind (e.g. printing, graphic design, giveaways) are a practical way to support GPLH.  GPLH truly appreciates gifts that make our job easier or supplement our operating budget.



Flexible, meaningful opportunities are available to develop programs, set strategy and policy, assist with administrative functions, or share talents and skills.  Volunteer opportunities Include:


* Boards of Directors Service – Help shape the direction of GPLH by serving on the board or heading up a committee. 

* Meet the Funders Panel Discussion Committee – Assist with planning this annual event, co-sponsored with the Association of Development Officers, in which esteemed grant makers from the region discuss their views on philanthropy, grant making, relationship building, evaluations, and more. 

* Programming Committee – We can always use help finding and securing future topics and speakers. 

* Volunteer your skills!  – Use your talents to help advance the field of grant writing. We are currently seeking volunteers for our Programs Committee to assist in planning our quarterly Educational seminars and our Membership Committee.
