What is Riley’s Way Foundation?

Riley’s Way empowers young leaders to use kindness and empathy to create meaningful connections and positive change.

We envision a future where kind leaders build a better world.

Kindness is valuing and respecting others and offering to help without expecting anything in return. Kindness is empathy in action. Kindness is a strength that can build a better world.

Empathy is understanding all sides of a challenge, issue or obstacle. This means not just identifying an alternative perspective, but actually seeing things from a different point of view. Empathy enables strong and meaningful connections.

Why they are Awesome

  • In 2020, Riley’s Way worked with their school partners to help in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Through the grant program, we were able to provide Chromebooks to help with remote learning, help stock a food bank (including notes from the Riley’s Way community), and provide funding for a dance program which would have otherwise been cut.
