Rise Up Industries has partnered up with Packed with Purpose!
Since their 2016 launch, they have been committed to creating meaningful impact through high-quality gifts. They handpick a variety of products for their gift boxes from Purposeful Purveyors who transform individuals and communities around us.
Your gift will have an impact! It will wow those who receive it while positively impacting local communities. The products in their gift boxes provide young women job skills, train homeless youth, reduce landfill waste, offer the formerly incarcerated new opportunities, and more.
Don’t forget to direct Choice Dollars®!
Eligible Thrivent Financial members who have available Choice Dollars® have until March 31st to direct them. Grant funding from Thrivent Financial through its Thirvent Choice® program can help support organizations you care about. Don’t let Choice Dollars expire!
Thrivent Choice® can have a tremedous impact on an organzation. Show your appreciation for Rise Up Industries by directing Choice Dollars. The individual recommendations you make through Choice Dollars directions can make a profound impact.

#GivingTuesday is a global movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in all 50 states and in countries around the world. Millions of people have come together to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live.
Every act of generosity counts, and each means even more when we give together. #GivingTuesday includes people of all ethnicities, religions and backgrounds. Together, millions of people demonstrate our common capacity to give.
We hope you will remember Rise Up Industries this #GivingTuesday and that you will support our mission of providing former gang members hope, kinship and opportunities.
In May of 2016, we celebrated moving into a 500 sq ft facility and the welcome of two members. At the time we only had one CNC machine and very limited space. Fast forward to TODAY… We now have SIX members, FIVE CNC machines, a learning center and room for so much more!
We hope you join us on Friday, November 17th as we dedicate our new 4,000 sq ft machine shop in Santee, CA. All we ask is that you please RSVP by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 27th. Hors d’oeuvres and light refreshments will be served.
We’ve reached our goal!!! We’ve expanded our machine shop!! Thank you to everyone who made this happen! Thanks to your generous donations; we have brought on new members, purchased new equipment and have moved into a bigger facility! Our equipment and enrollment in our Reentry Program have quadrupled this year. We now have a waiting list for enrollment into our program!
As 2017 is slowly coming to an end, we have a list of priorities for 2018 on ways to develop and expand services within the Reentry Program. If you would like to be an active member of Team Rise Up and are interested in volunteering… Please subscribe below!
Thanks to a $50k grant from the David C. Copley Foundation and donations from our Machine Shop Social Enterprise Expansion Foundation Members, we were able to purchase a new Haas CNC Super Mini Mill. Our machine shop expansion is well underway and we are now training 3 members to become CNC machine operators. We are very proud of their progress and they will be great role models for our new members whom we will soon be adding to the team!
The expansion project is anticipated to take 15 months. Thank you to everyone that helped this expansion become a reality. Please stay tuned for more updates regarding our expansion!
