Dear Friend of Riley's Way,

You have the power to make a difference. Today, Giving Tuesday, celebrates those who take part in the worldwide movement to give back and do good. Acts of kindness, big and small, local and global, individual and community, matter.

Giving Tuesday is a Riley's Way kind of holiday, because our collective acts make our world a better, kinder place. Join millions of people across the world today in building a massive wave of generosity that will flood into 2021. Even seemingly small acts of kindness can make the biggest waves. How can you give back? See our ideas below!
Support the Next Generation of Kind Leaders Today
Our students talk about what Riley's Way means to them.
Be inspired by our next generation of kind leaders. Read about some of the exciting work our Riley's Way teens are doing in their own words here. Connect to a friend, neighbor, or community organization to ask: how can you help right now.
"You do not have to be in-person to make connections, have conversations, or just be there for someone. You just need to be present, engaged, and kind to all."

Double your impact and support Riley's Way today!

Together, our Board has generously offered to match up to $100,000 of contributions through the end of the year. Make a donation in honor of a kind leader you know and support teens across the country who are making this world a better, kinder, more just place. No amount is too small; all generosity helps.
  • $10 helps virtually connect elementary school students in Harlem to teens across NYC and buys art supplies for the Buddy Reading Program.
  • $50 helps us provide wellness and self-care opportunities for our teen leaders.
  • $100 helps us provide anti-racism, diversity and equity training for our students, staff, and Board. 
  • $500 helps young women from around the country attend our next Youth Leadership Retreat.
