Our Funding Priorities

Our Funding Priorities

Motivated by the belief that freedom is grace in action, We Raise Foundation partners with Christian organizations to raise consciousness, community leadership, and capital. Our vision is people free from poverty, violence, and inequality and this is achieved through our three priority granting areas:

education, workforce development, and criminal justice.

Academic achievement
leads to lifelong success.

We believe equity in a quality educational experience provides the greatest opportunity to achieve stability and success. We seek to support Christian schools, before and after school care, and tutoring programs for children in kindergarten through eighth grade who come from low-income households.

Focusing on people brings
stability to our communities.

We believe a robust, qualified workforce is central to building healthy individuals, families, and communities. We seek to support programs serving low-income women and men who desire the education, skills, and training required to acquire living wage employment to support themselves and their families.

Supporting programs that
offer a brighter future.

We believe effective justice requires consequences for those who break the law, but often this results in a lifelong impact, ensuring the same behaviors. We support programs that interrupt this cycle and give hope for a brighter future.
