More than 900 St. Louis area nonprofits are ready to mobilize their donors and attract new ones, as part of this year’s Give STL Day effort, which will be held on Tuesday, May 3, 2016, from midnight to midnight. On that day, generous St. Louisans are encouraged to visit, review the list of participating local nonprofits, and make a contribution of $10 or more to the local organizations of their choice. Now in its third year, Give STL Day, which is powered by the St. Louis Community Foundation, is the St. Louis area’s 24-hour day of online giving. On the same day, approximately 100 community foundations nationwide are also undertaking similar fundraising initiatives.

Rise has made a decision to replace our spring appeal with the Give STL Day movement. Rise needs your support to continue the important work of revitalization and community development in the St. Louis metropolitan area. Please stand with us and when that 24 hours of giving starts click the Give STL Day image in this e-mail to go to our giving page.

This event took place on May 3, 2016. You may still donate to Rise by clicking the icon but will be redirected to our donation page.client_id_24_media_file_name_1452206447.6708

As an added service in 2016, individual donors can also visit and sign up for “donor alerts,” which will generate helpful Give STL Day reminders and links as the May 3 date approaches. Status updates leading up to and on the day of the event will be posted on Facebook ( and Twitter (

Rise partners with communities and improves the quality of life for everyone living in those communities. Thank you for your support and for helping us in “lifting our communities”.
