Donate today to our Voices 2024 campaign to help us meet our goal!


The Communities Rise Annual Fundraiser

Registration for Voices 2024 is now closed. If you are still interested in attending, please contact, and you can make a donation worth the price of a ticket (sliding scale $80-$120) on our donate page to help us meet our campaign goal!

Celebrate more than 20 years of services and the diverse collective of funders, clients, volunteers, and changemakers that have built Communities Rise into the organization we are today.

Each ticket includes dinner and two drink tickets. Sliding scale tickets are available, more information on the registration page.

Join us and moderator Laura Clise, founder and CEO of Intentionalist, for a special conversation about the challenges facing small businesses and nonprofits in our community — and what their success can mean for us all. Plus, to honor one of the many people who have shaped the path that led us here, we’re presenting the Communities Rise Legacy Award to Alice Ito, one of the Co-Founders of the Nonprofit Assistance Center
