The RISE (Readiness, Implementation, and Sustainability for Effectiveness) Partnership is a three-year, $3 million program to provide the tools and services to strengthen more than 100 nonprofits in the region, according to United Way President and CEO Bill Golderer.
"Nonprofits that are trying their best to lift their neighbors are being given mandates and expectations, but they're not being given the tools and being strengthened and equipped for the journey that they've undertaken," he explained.
PropelNext works with grantees to boost their impact.
RISE is a partnership between the Scattergood Foundation, United Way, and EMCF, as well as other funders like The Barra Foundation, Campbell Soup Foundation, The Grace S. and W. Linton Nelson Foundation, Horner Foundation, and The Philadelphia Foundation.
The aim is also to create stronger programs, grow financial resources, and expand the number of people they serve.
