Social Initiatives

The Galvan Foundation addresses Hudson’s diverse social needs by partnering with local organizations,
providing grants to area nonprofits, and planning programs that directly serve community residents.

Tree Planting Initiative

Galvan Foundation established a permanent initiative to plant a sidewalk tree for any property owner in Hudson who requests one.The tree planting initiative is a continued partnership between Galvan Foundation, Hudson Conservation Advisory Council, City of Hudson, and Pondside Nursery. Hudson Conservation Advisory Council advises on tree selection and care. City of Hudson cuts openings in the sidewalks, and Galvan Foundation pays for the trees to be planted by Pondside Nursery, a local business.  Galvan has planted over 100 trees throughout Hudson.
