RIVER FUND: Stakeholder Forum 2021—Our NEW Mentoring Program

As RIVER FUND responded to COVID-19, quadrupling its impact in the communities we serve, the need to strengthen the mentoring component of our Cradle-to-College Initiative became more clear than ever. At this virtual event, held via Zoom on April 22, 2021, we made the case to our institutional funders, bringing our Mary C. Tiedemann Scholars in to the conversation.
