RISE Foundation



The mission of RISE is to empower people to become self-sufficient by building and sustaining human and financial assets. RISE does this by sponsoring programs targeting the youth (Goal Card now serving 800 youth annually in five sites – two of which are in Fayette County) and adults (Save Up serving 125 families annually; Common Cents now serving 2,000 annually and Silver Neighbors -- serving 1,000 annually). RISE also serves as the fiduciary and fiscal agent for Bank On Memphis, a public-private partnership between the City of Memphis, Shelby County government, financial institutions and nonprofits to encourage the un-banked to establish an account at a mainstream financial institution across the city.
