Consider Supporting Your Local Jewish Community Center
Whether you use the fitness center or the swimming pool, attend our dramatic productions, visit our senior center, sample our many social and cultural happenings, or have a child in one of our many programs, Riverdale Y appreciates your participation.
Many people don’t realize that Riverdale Y depends upon the generosity of the community to provide its services and programs. Membership dues and program fees cover less than 70% of our regular operating expenses, the rest of our funding comes from grants, and helpful folks like you!
Your generous donation ensures Riverdale Y can continue providing the best programs and services to the local community.
or support one of our initiatives below
Meals for Seniors
Many seniors who would ordinarily be at our Senior Center for socializing and a hot meal are currently confined to their homes because of the Coronavirus. Your donations will help us deliver meals to them so they can stay safe. If you would like to volunteer to deliver meals please contact Sharon Asherman at SAsherman@RiverdaleY.org.
COVID Emergency Fund
Please contribute to this emergency fund to support all the work we are doing during this pandemic: feeding over 150 seniors daily; providing childcare for first responders; and providing at home fitness, enrichment and cultural programs to thousands in our community.
Support our social responsibility programs
As a Champion of Social Responsibility, you lead the way in helping your community support volunteerism, community service and social action initiatives.
These programs are part of our collective social “DNA.” They exist because the community needs them, and because we are compelled to do the right thing by helping others.
Your financial support provides the fuel to run the social support engine of the Y. Together we can do all of this and more. Our community needs us, and we need your support.
Support the arts
Our Performing Arts Center (RPAC) has long been a proud home of our three resident theater companies (Riverdale Rising Stars, Junior Rising Stars, and Riverdale Rep), classes in music, dance, and theater schools, and other special events. As a Patron of the Arts, you support these programs and help provide scholarships so that everyone can access the arts, regardless of financial ability.
