The mission of the Rise Up Foundation is to improve the lives of children and families living in poverty and difficult circumstances. We achieve this through collaborations that empower individuals to make lasting changes in their lives. In 2014, Rise Up began to emphasize literacy projects as a path towards improving the future prospects of children in underserved communities.

At Rise Up we strive to be a resource for people, nonprofits and communities working toward prosperity and empowering children and families to achieve lifelong successes. Through book donations, classroom support, advocacy, and grant-making, Rise Up Foundation is able to create real and lasting change for children and families in need.

We are committed to ensuring the well-being of children by working with committed organizations to define and solve the problems chronic poverty brings to children and their communities. Whether locally or globally, children deserve the right to have access to clean water and sanitation, safe schools, healthy food supply and routine medical interventions such as immunizations and vitamin supplements.

Rise Up is constantly evolving. We invite you to learn more about the foundation, its program support and how to contact us for information on grants and assistance.
