What is RIVA Karma?

At RIVA, we believe in paying it forward to give back and make a difference in the world. Every quarter, we leverage collaborative technology and social media to select a charity and create meaningful Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) opportunities for team-building community service.

How We Do It

1) Crowdsource charity ideas via clients, employees, and partners
2) Select a RIVA Charity of the Quarter
3) Campaign and fundraise using crowdfunding social platforms
4) Host a team-building activity and/or social event for everyone involved

Who We Support

  • Touching Hearts
  • American Red Cross
  • USO
  • Best Buddies

Why We Do It

The sum of our actions creates awareness for new charities, helps the community, influences a better government, and ultimately brings our team closer together.
