Giving Tuesday

As many of you know, these past two months have been a rollercoaster. Jefferson RISE’s startup funding was reallocated and the Board embarked on a $300,000 fundraising campaign. We have made considerable progress and successfully reached our October target, but we are still far from raising the money needed to open Jefferson RISE.

We have a goal – $5,000 in 1 day – and we cannot do it without you.

Why $5,000?  Because another $5,000 will cover start-up costs for two more students to attend Jefferson RISE.

What is #Giving Tuesday?  With all of the buzz surrounding Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the nonprofit sector has claimed a piece of the pie and created Giving Tuesday, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, “a global day for giving back.”
