Alane and Paul Hohenberg are a well of generosity to the community of Rensselaer County and beyond. Their civic commitment to improved quality of life in Troy has benefited thousands.

With over 40 years of fundraising and communications experience in the arts and historic preservation, Alane has served as Director of Development at RCHS, founded and headed the Board of Directors of the Troy Community Food Cooperative, run her own catering business and energetically served on the boards of multiple non-profit organizations in Albany and Troy.

Professor Emeritus in Economics at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Paul authored many books and remains highly regarded in his field. In addition, he has served for many years on boards such as The Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region, the Troy Public Library Foundation and the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall. Alane and Paul are recognized for their generous support of many Capital Region civic and cultural organizations.

In 2003, with a keen interest in the well-being of downtown Troy, Alane and Paul purchased a significant 1825 brick townhouse, built as a modest example of a merchant’s house, on Second Street across from the Hart-Cluett House. Reaffirming their commitment to Troy they did extensive period research and restored this fine home. Alane and Paul are good neighbors and proud active residents of downtown Troy.
