The Riverdale Y will remain temporarily closed, as per the New York State mandate to close places of public gathering, but we are still working for you. Check out our online offerings

You Don’t have to be Rich To Donate To the Y


Did you know that the smallest donation still makes a difference?

It’s true! No matter what you can give, donating to the Riverdale Y ensures we continue to be your neighborhood for health, comfort, education, caring and fun, and helps build that neighborhood even more!

It’s a simple story: Our revenues—the money we collect from our memberships, our programs, services and tickets—only pay for about 70% of our costs. The remainder comes from generous donations from foundations, our State and Local governments, and people like YOU.


For example:

  • A gift of $5 pays for lunch for a senior for a day. $10 pays for 2 lunches
  • A gift of $10 pays for crayons or chalk for toddlers at our Early Education Center
  • A gift of $25 will buy an iPad case and screen protector for our Teachers’ new iPads
  • A gift of $50 will buy 5 hand paddles for our toddlers in swim class


The Y offers so much to each of us, it’s a nice way of saying “thank you.” You can be sure that every gift we receive is appreciated as much as a bar of gold. You can click on the donate button below,  or on our website. If you prefer to write checks, you can make them out to the Riverdale Y and drop them at the front desk, or mail them to:


The Riverdale Y

5625 Arlington Avenue

Bronx, NY 10471


All gifts between now and December 1, 2017 donated through the website, other donate buttons on this blog, our e-blasts, or by check will be counted towards our upcoming #GivingTuesday campaign (more details to come soon)!

So thanks for your generosity!  We plan to make giving to the Riverdale Y fun. Have a great weekend!
