Through the month of June, Community members will show their support through self-made videos to inspire donations to RYC and help sustain this community organization!  Join us to show you support of the Rye Youth Council and to reaffirm that even apart, we are BETTER TOGETHER! 

Rye Youth Council in Action

Thank you to Mary Fitzgibbons of MH Montage for creating this video showing the Rye Youth Council's impact on our community. 

Today, we ask for your support


 Like many organizations throughout our community, RYC is facing a challenge due to this unexpected health crisis.  The main sources of our revenue are our spring luncheon and two other spring fundraising events, all of which have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. These events have been replaced by a virtual event  on May 21st and an online fund drive through June 30th.  We need your help more than ever.

RYC is gathering support from our community to raise $50,000 by June 30th. We will be featuring short videos throughout the month of RYC in action as well as local citizens showing their support for our programs, services and mission.  

For almost 50 years, Rye Youth Council has supported the social and emotional health and mental well-being of children, teens, and young adults in our community.  Please donate today and help us continue to be here for you!
