About the Organization

Too often organizations serving the most marginalized young people in our community are under-resourced, siloed, and competing against each other for precious resources. Ultimately, it’s the young people that suffer. As an umbrella organization, Rodman for Kids believes in the power of collaboration, working together with 40+ youth-focused non-profit organizations as a true partner to support the most vulnerable young people in our communities. We not only act as a core funder of these organizations, but as a convenor and catalyst.

Our Vision: At Rodman for Kids, we believe every young person deserves access to the programs, resources, and opportunities they need to dream, grow, and succeed.

Our Mission: We are committed to raising resources, building capacity, and creating opportunities for youth-focused organizations, their leaders, and the kids they serve.

How do we do it?

Through our signature cost-free fundraising platform, the Rodman Ride for Kids, we convene our Partner Organizations and offer incentive-based fundraising opportunities that increases participation, grows donor engagement, and ultimately raises more funds for their programs than otherwise would be possible. 100% of funds raised directly impact kids.

For additional financial support to dozens of Partner Organizations, we provide a one-of-a kind holiday fundraising gala, the Celebration for Kids, bringing together Boston’s top chef’s, celebrities, and an unparalleled auction to help kids & families enjoy a brighter holiday season and receive vital support and services throughout the year.

These high-profile events not only raise much needed funds, but engage thousands of supporters from across the state and greatly amplify public awareness of these organizations in the community.

We also support our Partner Organizations by providing unique, once-in-a lifetime experiences to the young people they serve through our Theatre for Kids and Disney for Kids programs – opening their eyes, broadening their horizons, and inspiring their minds to possibilities beyond their own imaginations and neighborhoods.

The result is a strong, connected, and well-resourced network of youth-focused nonprofit organizations and opportunities young people have access to throughout the Commonwealth.

 

To put it simply, we empower our Partner Organizations to do what they do best – help the kids.
