Motivated by the belief that freedom is grace in action, We Raise Foundation partners with Christian nonprofit organizations and emerging leaders working at the intersection of poverty, violence, and inequality. We employ a unique approach to our investing by coupling program funding with a variety of robust value-added services that empower our grantees to grow their solutions to tackle social problems on the scale at which they exist. Our three priority granting areas are:

education, workforce development, and criminal justice.

criminaljustice

By promoting equality for those impacted by the
criminal justice system, we initiate a cycle of hopefulness.

Half of released American prisoners end up going back to jail within three years.
We’re making sure that changes.

GRANTEE HIGHLIGHT

Grantee Helps Ex-Offenders Build New Lives

As hard as prison was, life outside continued to get worse for Anthony. In fact, he was out of prison for three years when he hit rock bottom, a dramatic juxtaposition to the present, which he describes as “the best six months of his life.” At the bottom he found himself repeating the same patterns that landed him in prison. He was unable to manage his anger in a healthy way and was close to acting out in his frustration.

But Anthony experienced a vision of everything he hated about prison—he says God gave him a sign—and he knew what to do.
Ask for help.

… And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”

Micah 6:8

We work hand in hand with Christian nonprofits to end poverty, violence, and inequality in our communities. Take action today and raise up those in need.
