Rise: Women’s Philanthropy Initiative
Rise with Us
Rise is a community of diverse, dynamic, and generous women with a shared purpose: empowering women and children experiencing homelessness in Cleveland to rise up from their circumstances through the power of hope.
To create lasting paths out of poverty, the women of Rise unite their voices and their philanthropic resources to amplify impact, progress through unity, and provide hope to Cleveland families for generations to come.
Founded in 2021 as a supportive ministry of The City Mission, Rise prepares to answer the call of a city in need of hope and change through strategic philanthropy.
Because the truth is, when women share their energy and financial resources, we have the ability to transform an entire community.
IMPACT + UNITY + HOPE
