Observing our work's positive ripple effect across New York's communities has been both inspiring and a clear indicator of our effectiveness.
Lauren, RLC Member
I joined the Rising Leaders Council so I could give back to the city that has given so much to me.

The breadth of the organization's reach and volunteer options allowed me to feel like I was giving back to the community in a dynamic way.
Anyone Can Make the Trip to NYC.
You Can Make a Difference.
As a Rising Leader, every hour you serve helps make the city more equitable – and every connection you make with your fellow leaders multiplies that impact.

- A personal commitment of $5,000
- Raising or leveraging donations
- In-kind donations or contributions from your employer
Rising Leaders are active volunteers, serve on projects throughout the year, and participate in monthly RLC meetings.
