Who We Support

Organizations Women Who RISE! Are Proud to Support!

Each of our initiatives supports external organizations that work within your local community, regionally, nationally or worldwide to help those in need of assistance in their journey. In addition to the women you will work with, and the masses you will touch with your smarts & hearts, your investment in your Women Who RISE journey also benefits one or more of these exceptional organizations. We donate a portion of each initiative supporting women, children and families in need domestically and abroad.

BiAnnual RISE! Odyssey supports Water.Org. Without water, life would not exist. It is a prerequisite for all human and economic development. Yet today, 780 million people – about one in nine – lack access to clean water. More than twice that many, 2.5 billion people, don’t have access to a toilet. We know how to bring people clean water and improved sanitation. We’re not waiting for a magic cure. And the solutions are simple and cost-effective. On average, every US dollar invested in water and sanitation provides an economic return of eight US dollars. For only $25, can bring someone access to clean water for life.

Women Who RISE! Memberships supports Feeding America. Feeding America is the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity. Their mission is to feed America’s hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engage our country in the fight to end hunger. 1 in 5 children in the US goes to sleep hungry. 1 in 6 adults. Together, we can turn the tide of hunger in America.

RISE! Your Life, by Design Virtual Life Academy supports FarmAid and UNICEF. Willie Nelson, Neil Young and John Mellencamp organized the first Farm Aid concert in 1985 to raise awareness about the loss of family farms and to raise funds to keep farm families on their land. Dave Matthews joined the Farm Aid Board of Directors in 2001. Farm Aid has raised more than $40 million to promote a strong and resilient family farm system of agriculture. Farm Aid is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to keep family farmers on their land. UNICEF mobilizes political will and material resources to help countries, particularly developing countries, ensure a “first call for children” and to build their capacity to form appropriate policies and deliver services for children and their families. UNICEF is committed to ensuring special protection for the most disadvantaged children – victims of war, disasters, extreme poverty, all forms of violence and exploitation and those with disabilities.
