Join us in our commitment to rebuild and revitalize neighborhoods across Greater St. Louis. There is much left to do, and in addition to our fundraising efforts and returns on investment, we rely on supporters like you to fuel our cause.

Rise is a nonprofit organization. Since we focus on revitalization and community impact rather than profit, we perform work that no other group in St. Louis is able or willing to do. Your gifts will enable us to continue rebuilding neighborhoods, provide expertise to local groups and work toward strengthening our greater community.

Your support will create opportunities for other families to live in a safer, stronger, more vibrant neighborhood. Your donation will also directly improve infrastructure and community planning in the areas that need it most.

Thank you for supporting Rise Community Development! 

We would also like to thank our subscribers for staying connected with us. Because of people like you, we will continue our neighborhood revitalization work and we will continue to improve the quality of life in our neighborhoods.

Our community development work is about two things: people and places.  We do it because we believe that strong neighborhoods are an essential part of a strong region and that a rising tide lifts all boats. Rise needs your input and support as we continue “lifting our communities”.

If you have any feedback concerning Rise and our community, please share it with us.

St. Louis needs Rise.  Rise needs you.
