Rodman for Kids is a convening non-profit organization that raises funds for youth-focused social-service organizations supporting positive youth development. Our mission is for all children in our community to have every opportunity to grow and succeed.
Everything we do is driven by our desire to carry forward the legacy left behind by our Founder, Don Rodman, who devoted the last few decades of his life to kids.
Our signature event, the Rodman Ride for Kids, offers our youth-focused Affiliate Charities a cost-free convening platform to raise funds for their programs and engage in collaborative opportunities. The Ride for Kids has raised more than $146 million and impacts tens of thousands of kids each year.
Our holiday gala, Celebration for Kids is a great party with a greater mission. 70 chef tastings and an unrivaled auction help raise funds for dozens of organizations to provide young people with a bright holiday season and opportunities for success throughout the year.
We also provide opportunities for young people to broaden their horizons and dream through our Disney for Kids and Marilyn Rodman Theatre for Kids programs, which respectively have sent more than 2,500 kids on 5-day all-expenses paid trips to Disney World and more than 75,000 kids to Broadway theatre performances in Boston.
