Join us in our Family-Led Movement for educational equity!
Your generous support goes directly to supporting families as leaders and change-agents in this movement. Plus, thanks to the generosity of our matching donor, every dollar donated will be matched up to $20,000. So if you donate $50 today, RISE will get an additional $50 from the matching funds. That's $100 that will go directly to supporting RISE programming and the movement for educational equity!
$25 pays for childcare for one workshop
$50 pays for food for one workshop
$100 pays for interpretation and translation services during one workshop
$500 pays for an entire workshop to engage families
$1,000 pays for a college field trip for families
But every dollar helps!
What We Do
Since 2013, RISE Colorado has educated more than 3,500 families, students and educators with RISE programming, leading to over 60 key organizing wins, actions and policy changes.
Working directly with low-income families, families of color, and immigrant, refugee and asylum-seeking communities, we're putting those most impacted by the opportunity gap at the forefront of the movement for educational equity.
How We Do It
1. We educate families about the realities of the opportunity gap, their role in ending it, and how they can support their children's academic success.
2. We engage families in coalitions, teach them the tools of community organizing, and support them in implementing solutions to improve our public school system.
3. We empower families to take on leadership roles at decision-making tables, ensuring that education leaders are reflective of, and responsive to the community.
