YOUR IMPACT: Your gift will directly change the trajectory of the lives of our students and their families who face tremendous obstacles and challenges—with little to no resources.

This valued resource is a vital embrace for our youth and an essential extension of our Mary C. Tiedemann Scholarship Fund. The Mentor-Mentee relationship can change the trajectory of lives and truly break the cycle of poverty!

YOUR IMPACT: Volunteers are the very core of RIVER FUND. For the first 25+ years, we operated solely at the hands of Volunteers. VOLUNTEERING has no boundaries and can take shape in many ways… through commitment of physical time, in-kind or monetary donations. Our RIVER FUND HeartCorps Program is an incredibly powerful poverty-embracing relationship between us, our corporate partners, and their employees. Making numerous initiatives possible!
