RiseDetroit Challenge and Detroit College Promise

The online fundraising challenge for RiseDetroit is in the homestretch.  The challenge will end October 30th. We have raised over $3,500 for the Detroit Public School students but we still need your help. We encourage you to give as well as share our fundraising page with friends, families and colleagues.

This challenge is only for non-profits and the top 3 organizations that raise the most could win between $10,000-$50,000 for their charity. With this extra money we can continue to increase our scholarship amounts for the Class of 2015. Our mission is to make education a priority in the Detroit Public Schools and with your help, we can continue helping these students achieve higher education.
