Donate to Help us Rise

We need your help to realize our vision of the Reher Center as a vibrant year-round destination drawing school children, residents, and visitors alike to explore new aspects of the Hudson Valley’s rich history and culture. Our site will be a crossroads, drawing together people from diverse backgrounds to discover local history, share and partake in culture, bake ethnic foods, and break bread together. Visitors will leave with newfound empathy for the immigrant experience, admiration for our multi-cultural society, and motivation to engage in communal and civic life.

Your support is essential for us to create unique exhibits, tours, and programs that preserve and present stories about immigration, community, work and bread in the Hudson Valley.

Your donation to the Reher Center is fully tax-deductible, through our fiscal sponsor, the Jewish Federation of Ulster County (EIN 14-1374486).

If you'd like to discuss naming opportunities in the historic Reher Bakery building, email development@rehercenter.org.

Set The Table

Last summer when we put the Reher Center Gallery together on a shoestring budget, we purchased only the cheapest and most necessary of equipment to mount exhibitions and host art openings. It’s unbelievable to see the progress we have made in just one year.

Our public programs have already grown to include K-12 education, film screenings, a book club, food workshops, and various other events and meetings.

Please consider helping us to fulfill our mission by purchasing some of the crucial equipment that we need to make The Reher Center Gallery into an even safer and more comfortable Community Table.
