We Raise Foundation Launch Celebration

Supporters and Partners Connect at We Raise Foundation Launch Celebration

Friday, March 2, 2018 was a night of celebration. A night to honor an organization’s past and catapult its vision for the future. A night to acknowledge the hard realities of individuals caught in the cycles of poverty, violence, and inequality while highlighting the work being done to create healthy communities.

We Raise Foundation supporters and grantees gathered in Oak Brook, Ill., to celebrate the launch of We Raise Foundation. The ballroom buzzed with excitement as over 250 We Raise friends met the inspired leaders working to raise people out of their suffering. In turn, hard-working program partners met the supporters who believe in them and the work that they do.
