Our Motto

No child should be left behind nor turned around due
to a lack of funding to go away to college.

TESTIMONIALS

“THE RISE FOUNDATION HAS HELPED ME MENTALLY PREPARE FOR ALL THAT COLLEGE HAS TO OFFER AS WELL AS HELPED ME FILL OUT A NUMER OF COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS AND GRANTS IN AN EFFORT TO PAY MY TUITION. IN ADDITION, WALMART, A SPONSOR OF THE RISE FOUNDATION, HELPED FURNISH MY DORM ROOM WHICH HELPED ME SAVE MONEY ON DOOM ROOM SUPPLIES."

DAMARI GANDY / UIC / '2016

"ONE OF THE REASONS I JOINED THE RISE FOUNDATION WAS TO INTERACT WITH MY PEOPLE. I WENT TO A PREDOMINATELY WHITE HIGH SCHOOL AND IT'S HARD TO RELATE TO PEOPLE BECAUSE THEY'RE NOT LIKE ME. I"M NOT FROM THE INNER CITY, I"M FOMD THE SUBURBS AND I WANTED TO BRIDGE THE GAP BETWEEN THAT. WE HAVE TO SUPPORT EACH OTHER, GROW, AND LEARN WITH EACH OTHER. I LOVE BEING A PART OF 'GIRLS IN PEARLS' AND THE RISE FOUNDATION BECAUSE IT'S A WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITY TO GROW AND LEARN." 

ALEXIS BROWN / '2020

WE HELP UNDERSERVED AND AT-RISK CHILDREN REACH A COLLEGE EDUCATION AND RISE ABOVE THE EXPECTATIONS.
