The Charity with a BIG difference making a BIG difference! The Charity that gives our students a HAND UP as opposed to a HAND OUT.

The New Zealand Police have seen an amazing change and ripple effect through the schools that The Rising Foundation participates in. We need to help these students to stay on the right path in life.

92% of funds raised goes back into the students, wages for our Programme Coordinators and camps.

There are approximately 300 students on The Rising Foundation youth development programme ‘Unlocking Your Potential’

We work with each student for up to seven years to ensure that they are given a HAND UP in life rather than a HAND OUT.

We would love your support in this and would be very excited if you participated in this foundation.

If you are able to assist The Rising Foundation in helping all New Zealand youth, you can make a monthly contribution, sponsor a child for a year, make a one off donation or become a corporate partner.
