Let’s end poverty, violence, and inequality in our communities together.

Your compassionate commitment is helping people of all generations and races overcome poverty, violence, and inequality. Thank you for helping us identify leaders who put innovative ideas into action.

Ashley Paavola is a recent recipient of a We Raise Foundation Emerging Leader grant. Ashley and her family live in a St. Louis neighborhood known for its racial diversity, racial tension, and socio-economic variety. There she’s helped plant a church “as diverse as the city we serve” and developed an after-school program where she mentors both children and parents with cultural fluency, humility, and love.

Your gift to We Raise Foundation will empower and equip organizations and emerging leaders as they bring hope through education, workforce development, and criminal justice programs.
