RSF YPN

an NYC Young Professionals Network

This year, Richie’s Spirit Foundation welcomed its first cohort of early to mid-career, twenty- and thirty-somethings working in the NYC area to help support our mission of organ donation awareness. Learn more about the YPN below.

  • Helping to give others the most important gift of all: the gift of life

WHAT IS THE TIME COMMITMENT?

  • We have three to four events throughout the year. Some occur on weeknights, and others on the weekend. We’ll give you advance notice so you can plan accordingly to attend.
  • The cohort will run two happy hours, one in the spring and one in the fall, that you will help to plan, advertise, and attend.
  • Attend quarterly meetings with our staff for networking opportunities and to learn more about organ donation.
  • During our end-of-the-year Annual Appeal, you’ll reach out to your professional and social networks to meet your fundraising goal.
