River Fund, Inc. has been blessed with an overwhelming response of support from the moment the announcement was made that "locals were out to help locals" and the River Fund corporation was founded. Since its inception in the summer of 2010 through December 31, 2016 (just over six years of operation), the River Fund has provided direct emergency crisis assistance to 8,891 local families totaling $1,037,091.04. This assistance to individuals, when added to the grants and donor designation payments River Fund has made to local non-profits, totals $1,658,716.93 that the River Fund has distributed to the community in emergency assistance and local programs.
This assistance to local individual families and to local organizations was the result of people opening up their hearts and their pocketbooks with donations ranging from a dollar to more than $5,000 in single donations and hundreds of employees representing businesses on both sides of the Colorado River committing to payroll deductions that created the "Employee Donor Crisis Fund."
Among the many contributors to the success of the River Fund are those that have graciously contributed well above anyone's expectations, not only because they can, but also because they believe in the River Fund, its goals and objectives, and above all, the people within the communities being served.
Listed here are many of the River Fund's contributors in four categories:
BRONZE $250 to $499 ~ SILVER $500 to $999 ~ GOLD $1,000 to $2,499 ~ PLATINUM $2,500 and above
