Orlando Rivera Memorial Fund

Few people have had the worldwide impact for Christ that Orlando and Nancy Rivera have had. As a pastor, speaker, teacher, entrepreneur, leader, mentor, community organizer and developer, and family member, Orlando and Nancy have personally poured their hearts and souls into people across the world.

Orlando and Nancy were married for 28 years. After trying to grow their family biologically and being told they could not, Nancy and Orlando adopted seven children. Then came three biological children, the youngest of whom is five. Their ministry impact has been felt through Northland Church; the DeVos Urban Leadership Initiative; various initiatives within the Holden Heights neighborhood of Orlando; the Hub University Church; Nyack College; Mount Vernon Alliance Church; Paterson Habitat for Humanity; and countless other ministries around the world. They longed to see people groups and individuals come to know Jesus Christ-and many have because of their ministry.

The Rivera family needs as many prayers and as much emotional support as possible right now! There are significant financial expenses about to hit the family. Your financial gifts will ease the monetary burden caused by this tragedy, both now and into the future! We would like to raise $100,000 to help Nancy navigate the challenging financial waters ahead. They have impacted so many of us around the world—would you please consider impacting them as well?

The True North Foundation has determined that it will use funds in its benevolence fund to help the Orlando Rivera Family. Federal tax laws do not permit donors to earmark their tax-deductible benevolence contributions to benefit specific individuals, and the True North Foundation must maintain full discretion and administrative control over contributed funds. You can note with your gift, however, that you are giving because of the Orlando Rivera families need, and the True North Foundation will carefully consider that need in carrying out its mission.
