Supporting The River Fund New York requires an understanding that fighting poverty is a war. It's brutal and there are casualties. Being involved requires a level of commitment that goes far beyond sporadic donations and cheering from the sidelines. We have built a very strong base of supporters who understand these realities—and that has allowed us to grow dramatically over the past several years.
As we continue to make a difference in dozens of communities—in more than 40 zip-codes all across our City—our high degree of efficiency, lean operating structure and unparalleled cost-effectiveness have attracted supporters of all kinds, who have become part of our Family. We have responded to this great outpouring of support, by establishing a wide range of channels though which our River Fund Family members can support us. Although every $1 dollar donated to us yields $20 worth of product to those we serve, ensuring that you understand clearly what your support actually accomplishes is very important to us.
Because of our approach to donor-engagement, our supporters can choose from several “methods” of giving, or pick specific “focus” areas for their contributions.
