OCTOBER 30, 2024

On October 30th, 2024

we gather to champion our Mary C. Tiedemann Scholars, our RIVER FUND Youth, raising vital funds to help expand our RIVER FUND Educational Pathways Programs. 


One in four children in New York City live in Poverty…


RIVER FUND sees education as the key to overcoming this, supporting Youth from prenatal care through college scholarships. Our approach ensures that when individuals thrive, their families and communities do too.


Education is the way forward!
