Consider Supporting Your Local Jewish Community Center

Riverdale Y General Fund

Riverdale Y depends upon the generosity of the community to provide our 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!

Over the past few years, some programs and services funded by donors like you include:

  • Scholarships to participate in Rising Stars, our premiere teen theater group
  • Free meals delivered to older adults
  • Renovation of the Multi-purpose room to expand the number of classrooms
  • Creation of the QUEST studio, a custom digital personal training model
  • Scholarships for children with disabilities to participate in our basketball program

Riverdale Y Security Fund

We are seeking your support by asking you to consider contributing to our fund to help us reach our initial goal of an additional $15,000 or more that will match and exceed the UJA Federation grant, and directly fund our immediate increased need for safety.

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

Social Responsibility

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.
