In our book, there is but one equation:
Education + Incentives = Greater Prosperity
RISE Foundation is a nonprofit organization committed to transforming the lives of our low-income neighbors through financial literacy.
Social services, which treat symptoms, offer a short-term solution, but RISE teaches people valuable skills that last a lifetime. We’ve pioneered strategies that help entry-level wage earners budget, save and accumulate assets. We equip our community’s youth with financial literacy tools and life skills to guide them toward success.
RISE’s work has also led to a deeper understanding of the larger community issues working against families in Memphis and Shelby County. It benefits all of us to give our neighbors the tools they need to become and remain self-sufficient.
