As of 2010, total net worth in the Dutchess, Putnam and Ulster county area was $74 billion.
Of that total amount, $22 billion is expected to transfer from one generation to the next through probate estates over the next 10 years.
Total Personal Net Worth
|Dutchess County|| $37 billion|| $11.5 billion|
|Putnam County|| $21.3 billion|| $4.36 billion|
|Ulster County|| $15.9 billion|| $6.14 billion|
|Hudson Valley|| $74.2 billion|| $22 billion|
A number of those assets will transfer to heirs who live outside of the Hudson Valley.
If 5% of that projected transfer was designated for local charity, nearly $1.1 billion would be retained for the benefit of Dutchess, Putnam and Ulster counties.
If that $1.1 billion was housed in a charitable endowment an estimated $55 million would be available for nonprofits each year.
