Help us give more infants a secure and respectful start

When you donate to RIE, you’re helping us expand our programs to communities across the US and the globe. We are particularly focused on increasing access among families and caregivers in communities of opportunity.

RIE is valued across childcare settings and communities because our relationship-based and caregiving-focused approach is accessible to anyone regardless of circumstances. Moreover, the RIE philosophy champions parents as the experts in their child. Our framework of principles supports parents in making thoughtful decisions about meeting their baby’s needs while also acknowledging their own. This makes RIE a multi-cultural approach where families can balance baby’s natural dependence and innate capabilities in a way that makes sense in their own culture. Finally, by centering the caregiving relationship, RIE can help families protect against adverse childhood events (ACEs) that put infants at risk due to environmental factors beyond their control.

RIE is actively seeking ways to expand accessibility to our programs, equity in our training, and diversity in our organization. Your financial help can us get there! Please donate today.

RIE is 3-star rated on Charity Navigator and Gold-rated on Guidestar.

“Having participated in RIE classes since May, I have truly seen the impact and change it has made in my day to day interactions with my toddler son. My instructor is so wise and shares her insight in the kindest manner. “

“The Texas inner-city children and families I serve are open to a …different way of care. I am thankful to the RIE Foundations course for counseling me on how to implement relational and respectful care…Magda’s legacy has impacted families and children from low socio-economic backgrounds, children with exceptionalities…”

“As a mother of two young children, as well as an Early Childhood Educator working with toddlers, this course…was highly relevant and helpful. I feel I learned more in six short weeks than I did in my whole BA/MA collegiate studies. “
