REDW’s 2012 fundraising goal was $160,000, easily exceeded by more than $70,000.

We sincerely appreciate how much REDW cares about supporting United Way and our community,” Rivera concluded.
REDW has been a strong supporter of and advocate for United Way of Central New Mexico since 1998. For the past 14 years, our team members have raised more than $1.5 M and contributed hundreds of hours. “At REDW, we set high standards for ourselves and, through our actions, we hope to encourage other citizens and local businesses to become active community supporters. All levels of our ranks are fully committed to volunteer and serve on boards of various local, state and even national nonprofit organizations,” said Ron Rivera, REDW’s Managing Principal. “At a time when charitable contributions are dwindling, REDW Team Members stepped it up. We are proud of their efforts; they truly embody the firm’s commitment to public service,” continued Rivera.
