The Hudson Valley Division of the NMRA promotes the hobby of model railroading in the lower Hudson Valley of New York State in Sullivan, Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Ulster and Rockland counties through education, promotion of model railroading activities, serving as local resources for individual model railroaders, and supporting local model railroad groups. To that end, support from the membership and others is what keeps us going.

Your financial support helps to ensure the ongoing success of our organization, which has been serving our area since 1946. One hundred percent (100%) of your donation goes directly toward the programs, displays, and activities provided by the Division to both its members and the general public.

Our Hudson Valley Division is a registered non-profit organization under the IRS 501(c)(3) guidelines. Your donations to our Division are a charitable donation, and therefore tax-deductible on your federal income tax. As always, consult your financial advisor for full details.
