What We Do

At Rise and Share, we pollinate generosity.  With the "power of all" in mind, we connect community to services and nonprofits to the resources they need to be successful in a post-pandemic environment. Rise and Share engages various private funders with non-profit partners to mutually support marketing, funding, informational, volunteer, and operational support services using an online platform and other delivery methods. Four key service areas support nonprofits in Community-Building & Networking, Management & Strategic Planning, Marketing & Promotions, and Training & Skills Development. We provide plenty of opportunities to DO GOOD BUSINESS with sponsorship opportunities for corporations and businesses. Our first signature program is a revolutionary Software as a Service (SaaS) platform which we envision will change how community connects to nonprofits. These SHARE Communities, including SHARE Middlesex and SHARE Ukraine with plans to expand in NJ and beyond, are one-stop sites that enable local nonprofits to 1) promote their services to the community, 2) accept online donations, 3) share a link to their organization’s wish list, 4) publicize events, and 5) recruit volunteers. Watch for our upcoming campaign, "What Exit Next, NJ???", to see where the next SHARE Community will rise. Rise and Share operates this service at no cost to the community users or nonprofits as we recruit sponsors for the platforms. More than ever, generosity pollinating is needed to help build a more just, equitable, and resilient world. We are firmly committed to helping our nonprofit partners find ways to carry out their missions at this challenging time. We will weather this storm, RISE above it AND SHARE resources for success.
