Dianne Riley

Dianne Riley (she/her) works with a talented team to build organizational capacity and steady, principled growth through donor engagement guided by the vision, mission, and community of Columbia Riverkeeper. Dianne has worked in the areas of fundraising, development and social justice philanthropy for the past two and a half decades. But her connections to environmental and social justice activism spring from a lifelong habit of seeking health and harmony by increasing her own understanding.

Everyone can contribute to the collective processes of restoration, healing and renewal of rivers, community, and climate. Dianne’s day-to-day work life is about helping all of us see our own value and to appreciate our ability to contribute to this critical task of river keeping. She is inspired by the growing network engaged in this effort and finds hope in the everyday victories.
