Support Us

jump2We appreciate your consideration to sponsor the R.I.S.E. agency. R.I.S.E. became a nonprofit agency July 1, 2014. We support at-Promise, low-income youth in the city of Berkeley. Most of our youth are first generation college students and newcomers. Our goal is that every student is eligible for the college of their choice, with scholarships. We assist the families with legal, financial and medical support. We feel the success of the youth positively impacts the future of the family.
