Jennifer Riordan Foundation Statement

In 2018, the Jennifer Riordan Foundation was formed to honor the kind spirit and carry on the legacy of Jennifer Riordan, a pillar of philanthropy and kindness throughout the Albuquerque community. It is our mission to recognize, support and spread acts of kindness in the spirit of Jenn.

The Spark Kindness movement started by connecting with community organizations and schools to help make Albuquerque the kindness capital of the world. This started with our Spark Kindness app where you can help us get to 1,000,000 acts of kindness logged.

The foundation has since grown to support multiple school Spark Kindness grants, sponsored community acts of kindness days and more with the help of our partners who want to make the world a better place through kindness. We are excited to go out of our “kindness zone” on the Spark Kindness Tour. We will kick off our tour in Albuquerque, NM and end in Colchester, VT. Follow along with us as we spread kindness to communities across the United States!
