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!
