Ways To Give

When you partner with RaiseUp Families, you are breaking the cycle of generational poverty by providing a promised-filled future to children across Houston. Every $1 invested in RaiseUp Families programming generates an estimated $20 in long-term value to participating families and the community through improved earnings and reduced dependence on safety-net services. RaiseUp Families is a 501(c)(3) organization. All donations are tax deductible.

Make a Gift of Stock

Did you know that when you donate stock, you avoid the tax on the gain while deducting 100% of the value of the contribution? When you give stock, you may earn 2-3x the tax savings vs. donating cash. It’s a win-win for you and us. And now it’s fast, safe, and easy to do.
