United Way of Hudson County Creates an
Online Non-Profit Resource Center
At United Way of Hudson County, we believe it is our mission to do whatever we can to help the poor, the sick, the elderly, the disabled and the homeless people of Hudson County. In part, we do this by supporting the work of other non-profit agencies in the county. If we have available funding or know of a grant or other resources that can benefit another non-profit and help them serve their clients, we will provide that funding and/or resources to fulfill that need. We consider it our responsibility to help every well-rounded non-profit agency in Hudson County succeed in their mission.
Therefore, United Way of Hudson County has made it part of our mission to become an information clearinghouse, an online non-profit resource center, where we share our resources with other non-profit agencies. We believe by offering our information and resources to other non-profit agencies, we can help them continue to grow and succeed in their mission.
In this section, non-profit agencies can download many of our databases and directories and link up with a vast offering of resources that will help them reach out to the communities they serve.
Whether it is the address of our governor, the website of a local newspaper or the phone number of a pro bono lawyer, the databases and links in this section have that information. Some databases (due to their size) will require a request form. If that is the case, just click on the database, fill out the form and email it back to us. When your request is approved, we will send you an email notification letting you know when to pick up the document(s).
In the future, United Way of Hudson County plans to have a visible Non-Profit Resource Center in our community, housed in a building with public access. There, we will have resource specialists on staff to help guide you with outreach, grant writing, financials and audits and other processes involved in running a viable Non-Profit Organization in Hudson County.
