More webinars coming soon!
We Raise Foundation builds consciousness, community leadership, and capital. One of the many ways we do this is by providing regular skill building webinars on resource development led by expert practitioners. Interspersed with these skill building webinars, we encourage conversation and learning about issues at the intersection of poverty, violence, and inequality.

Together We Learn: Emerging Leaders Convene in Chicago
We Raise doesn’t just support leaders where they are, we invest in where they’re going next. That’s why, each year, we bring together leaders from our grant programs to a three-day convening in Chicago. Recently, we welcomed 24 leaders from 19 organizations from around the country, all working to address major issues in their communities. The conference-style gathering is designed to celebrate their work, provide opportunities for them to be refreshed, develop valuable skills, and be encouraged by networking with other like-minded emerging leaders.
Supporters and Partners Connect at We Raise Foundation Launch Celebration
On March 2, 2018, 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.
