New Stretch Goal Introduced!

November 20, 2020

Thank you so much for your generosity in supporting the RISE Center spark campaign. Because of you, we have reached our initial goal of 175 donors! The dedication, spirit, and thoughtfulness of parents such as you is inspiring. 


But we’re not done yet. With 13 days to go, we are introducing an additional STRETCH GOAL OF 250 Donors by December 1. 


This funding will not only support the thousands of students who are part of RISE programs, but also help our dedicated RISE Staff access the training and professional development they need to expand the center’s outreach and services, tailored to each individual student and their unique needs. 


If you haven’t already, please share this special campaign to support student resilience, empowerment, and mental health to your friends and family. Together we are #BruinStrong.
