Rodman for Kids is an umbrella matching gift charity raising funds for youth-focused social-service organizations that support at-risk children in Massachusetts. Rodman for Kids and its affiliated charities fundraise year-round, culminating with the Ride for Kids event, a 25, 50, and 100-mile noncompetitive cycling tour, each fall. Our mission is to have every kid in our community live as we would want our own kids to live.
Affiliated Charities raise funds through corporate sponsorship, foundations, individual donors and ridership. In turn, Rodman matches those funds at a rate of 5% when the agencies meet their predetermined fundraising goal.
The expenses associated with the Ride for Kids are about 2% of the total revenue, and they are all underwritten by Rodman Ford. When you donate to the Ride for Kids,100% of your donation will directly benefit at-risk kids!
We are the #1 single-day athletic fundraiser in the nation supporting at-risk kids.
Rodman for Kids has also grown to include other initiatives aimed at enriching the lives of at- risk kids. These initiatives include Celebration for Kids, Marilyn Rodman Theatre for Kids, Disney for Kids, and Car Donations for Kids.
