Riley's Dance


Riley’s Dance, a program of NJ Sharing Network Foundation, was created to honor and remember the unique and special life of five year old Riley Kogen, who we lost too soon.  Riley gave the gift of life to two women who received her kidneys. Her gift not only saved two people, but their entire families as well.

Riley's Dance is the first family fund of its kind under the NJ Sharing Network Foundation. With the collaboration of NJ Sharing Network, Riley's Dance seeks to improve the quality of life for recipients and those in need of organ transplants. Riley’s Dance will delegate funds to families in need of significant medical coverage and those pursuing financial aid. This will benefit those disadvantaged at a very pressing and stressful time.

Because of your past support, we were able to provide hundreds of meals to healthcare workers battling COVID-19 throughout NJ. It has been truly amazing to support the frontline staff in this way. Additionally, we have been able to work closely with the hospitals to help the most vulnerable patients suffering during this pandemic.
