The success of the RISE Program is dependent on contributions from our partners and individuals in the community.

The cost to fund internships and provide educational opportunities is approximately $3,000 to $4,500 per RISE participant (dependent on the length of the work internship). Your generosity will directly impact RISE participants and support various employment opportunities to prepare them for long-term employment.

*Please note: Any monetary gifts received by personal, corporate or foundation giving will be matched dollar for dollar by the Ausherman Family Foundation up to $20,000.
