Uprise Circus is the only social circus organization in Texas. We’re in need of $7,873 to launch our “Soar to New Heights” flying trapeze program that teaches kids how to overcome challenging situations and develop valuable social skills. It enables kids to create a long-term support network of friends and mentors—all while providing a unique and memorable experience.
1 in 4 kids in Central Texas are living in poverty — our team of volunteers and staff are dedicated to helping these kids succeed.
Research has shown that underserved kids without access to personal development programs like ours often show higher instances of delinquent behaviors, unplanned pregnancies, and dropping out. Uprise Circus gives children an outlet for creativity, energy, and enables them to focus on building both strength and self-esteem.
Your donation will help us finish building our trapeze rig, which is the last step in our program launch plan. Additionally, it will allow us to begin our "Soar to New Heights" programming. We are so close to opening our doors—please considering helping us get the funding we need.
How Can I Help?
You can help us reach our goal by donating to our campaign and sharing it with your friends and family. Every donation—whether $5 or $500—helps us get closer to our goal.
And because we are an IRS-certified 501(c)(3), every donation is 100% tax-deductible.
About Uprise Circus
Uprise Circus recently acquired Circus of Hope, a social circus charity in Austin that closed its doors in 2018. Founded by four women who love circus arts, Uprise Circus offers uplifting circus programs to underserved kids. As the only social circus in Texas, Uprise Circus provides a positive outlet for children who may not otherwise have access to such programs.
