Riot Gives Back Charity Foundation

Across the country, Riot Gives Back is dedicated to the communities we operate in by supporting our first responders, members of the military, and the compassionate care of children.

Riot Gives Back is the new charity foundation of Riot Hospitality Group (RHG), a national, premier hospitality management company headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona with locations in three U.S. states. Since RHG launched in 2010, our 14 locations have supported more than three dozen charities and events.

Now, community engagement across the Riot network will be coordinated through Riot Gives Back.

With Riot Gives Back, starting in 2022, both our guests and those on our team can continue to support organizations making an impact in the communities we live and work in—now, not just in the same Riot name, but under the umbrella of the same charity foundation.

Pillars of Impact

Across the greater Riot family, we are eternally grateful to those who risk and have risked everything to care for our communities and our freedom. We are also invested in an important part of our future—the precious lives of children needing medical care. That’s why we’ve focused our impact on organizations supporting our first responders, military servicemembers and veterans, and their families, and the compassionate care of children.

Donation Guidelines

Riot Gives back is asked to support thousands of worthwhile charitable causes and events across the country each year. We make every effort to accommodate as many requests as possible. However, due to the number of requests RGB receives every month, we are unable to accommodate all requests that fit our guidelines. For your organization to be considered for a donation item, you must comply with the following guidelines:

  • All donation requests must be submitted online.
  • Written or phone requests are not accepted.
  • The online donation form must be filled out entirely for your request to be considered.
  • Your organization must not have received a donation from the Bears during the current calendar year.
  • An organization is eligible to receive only one donation item per year.
  • Your request for a donation item must be submitted via the online donation form and must be received by RGB at least 60 days before the day your organization needs the request.
    • Please understand that if your request is not submitted 60 days before the event, RGB will not be able to consider your request.
  • Your non-profit organization must have 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status.
  • You must enter your organization’s valid Tax-Exempt ID number on the online form for your request to be considered. (If you are a business sponsoring a charitable event, please ask a charity member to complete the donation request form).

It is recommended that your event not be centered on the anticipation of receiving a donation item. Instead, an RGB donation item should be a complementary element to your event.

Due to the large volume of requests received every month, there are no exceptions to the above guidelines. Please keep in mind that submitting an online request does not guarantee your organization will receive a donation.

No phone calls, please.

Approval of a requested donation typically occurs 30 days (or sooner) from submittal.

We do not accept requests for signatures from Dierks Bentley.

Thank you for considering RGB as a contributor to your organization. We wish you the best of luck with your charitable and fundraising efforts.
