Raising funds to benefit others

Since 2014, Hearts for Russ has raised over $100,000 for heart and transplant-related causes.  We are proud of the impact we are making through innovative grants to important organizations.  To learn more about our previous awardees or to receive a grant application for your non-profit, click the Awardees link above.

Dedicated to the Memory & Spirit of Russell K. Housman


 New York State has the lowest organ donor registration rates in the nation. Hundreds of New Yorkers die each year waiting for a transplant, while just one donor can save up to eight lives.  

Hearts for Russ is dedicated to making a difference by raising funds for local non-profits  working to increase participation on the NYS organ donation registry, and supporting patients and families undergoing transplants.

Each year at our annual event we honor those who have given the gift of life through organ donation, the inspiring and strong organ recipients, and the transplant medical professionals who save countless lives.

Registration is Open!

The  6th annual Hearts for Russ Golf Tournament and Charity Dinner will be held at Harbor Links Golf Club on Friday, October 4th, 2019.
