"Partners in Improving Our Communities"


The Hunter Foundation is a not for profit 501C3 organization located in the Village of Tannersville, within the Town of Hunter, NY. We have played a key role in rehabilitating over 100 homes and 35 businesses, not just in Tannersville and Hunter but in surrounding,  Ashland, Jewett, Lexington, Prattsville and Windham. The Hunter Foundation is responsible for over 12 million dollars put into the community to promote economic development and tourism in our region. Jobs have been provided, local contractors used and we have helped to create thriving businesses.

Connecting people with nature since 1920


The New York-New Jersey Trail Conference is comprised of member organizations and individuals dedicated to providing recreational hiking opportunities in the region, and representing the interests and concerns of the hiking community. The Trail Conference is a volunteer-directed not-for-profit service organization committed to:

  • Developing, building, and maintaining hiking trails

  • Protecting hiking trail lands through support and advocacy

  • Educating the public in the responsible use of trails and the natural environment


Transforming lives through the arts


At the core of our vision is the belief that art can transform the lives of those touched by it. To this end, we aim to combine high-quality performances, artist residencies, and arts education in a multi-faceted program that will deliver broad impact to our community. For the future, we are focusing our energies on growing the programming we present, and on expanding the partnerships we develop with other arts organizations.

Mission of the CMF

The mission of the Catskill Mountain Foundation is five-fold:
• To bring the very best in the arts to our area and to the greater Catskill Region
• To support the work of artists through presentations of their work and residencies
• To provide educational opportunities in the arts for youth and lifelong learners
• To contribute to the economy of our area through Main Street Revitalization and adaptive reuse of abandoned or underused buildings for cultural uses
• To support sustainable living through our Natural Agriculture farm and Farm Fellows program


Discovering, interpreting, sharing and preserving Mountain Top history.


The Mountain Top Historical Society is dedicated to discovering and preserving the unique and rich history of the Catskill High Peaks. The Society is a not-for-profit organization and maintains a Visitor and Art Trail Center and the Ulster and Delaware train depot (shown above) on our campus in Haines Falls. We are located on scenic Route 23A at the gateway to the Mountain Top and are easily accessible from Exit 20 or 21 of the New York State Thruway.



The Platte Clove Bruderhof Community, located in Elka Park, NY, was founded in 1990 on the site of a former police camp. Situated among the breathtakingly beautiful Catskill Mountains, Platte Clove is an intentional Christian community and home to some 220 people.
