Why Donate

Dear Funder:

Because one in four children in the U.S. under the age of 18 are exposed to alcohol abuse or dependence in the family, it is imperative to continue creating programs that extend beyond initial treatment and focuses on the family afterward.  With substance use disorders on the rise in Utah it is essential for our communities to have support resources available to meet this growing need.  

Currently the Riley Foundation offers no cost social support resources such as free family workshops and individual needs based scholarships. These programs help families become independent and overcome common barriers to longterm success.  In addition to our free services for families, our orgainization participates in community outreach efforts that spread awareness and education regarding addiction issues.  Our goal is to be a constant source of hope and understanding for families in need and an advocate for addiction issues here in Utah.  

Our hope at the Riley Foundation is for children and families across the state of Utah to have easy access to the types of support networks needed to deal with the longterm realities of substance use issues.  Our belief is that families heal from addiction together and healthy families build stronger communities.


It's easy!  You can help us sustain our current programs by making a one time or recurring donation below.  If you would like your contribution to go toward a specific area make a note in the comment section to designate your funds.  For example, past donations have included grants for dental work and vocational training.  If you would like to donate an item or services contact lauren@rileyutah.org.
