Due to the uncertainty created by Covid-19, we could not come together in person for our biggest fundraiser of the year, our Annual Gala on September 22. However, hundreds of friends joined us virtually in celebrating our work and helping provide the funds needed to help New York City children, adults, and families overcome adversity. We rely on donors like you to create programs that are effective and create a lasting impact in the lives of New Yorkers who face a wide range of challenges. 

We are still rising, and we still need your support to continue our life-affirming work for New Yorkers in need!

You can always make a gift at www.RisingGround.org/Donate!
