OUR TEAM

Linda Williams

RISE Foundation President and CEO

Our staff is strongly committed to improving our community by empowering our neighbors to lift themselves out of poverty. We work diligently to provide families with the tools and resources they need to make better financial choices and to escape the cycle of poverty. We truly appreciate your support of our mission and your investments in the work yet to be done.    Whether it is through financial contributions or sharing information with your network about RISE Foundation’s efforts to improve the financial well-being of Memphis and Shelby County, together we can be the force that helps families successfully achieve self-sufficiency.
