cradle to college

RIVER FUND positions children of poor families on a trajectory for success as adults. And they in turn become the engine that pulls their families and neighborhoods forward.

Mary C. Tiedemann Scholarship

The Mary C. Tiedemann Scholarship Fund eliminates that pressure and offers bridge-grants to students so that they can focus on their education with the goal of completing their degree.

Mentoring Program

The River to Success Mentoring Program matches students and adults together in an environment where they are embraced, supported, and guided — personally and professionally.


A program helping to bridge the education equity gap by turning student engagement in health, sustainability, and community service into funds for school.
