In 2014, the foundation awarded a $25,000 grant for historic preservation to the Hendrick Hudson Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) to restore the exterior of the historic Robert Jenkins House. The NSDAR was established in 1896 and was presented the house as the permanent home for the chapter in 1900.
Built in 1811 by Robert Jenkins, who went on to serve as mayor of the City of Hudson for two terms, the Robert Jenkins House is a structure of historical significance and is featured on the New York State and National Registers of Historic Places. In addition to multiple artifacts such as Civil War-era weapons, the home houses a collection of Hudson regional genealogy in its Genealogical, Research, and History Reading Room. The Robert Jenkins House is open to the public.
