The CRE Rising Fund was developed out of CRE’s mission to serve nonprofit organizations that have deep roots in their communities and are working to fight poverty and advance opportunity.
Through the CRE Rising Fund, expert CRE consultants partner with small nonprofits to complete no-cost consulting engagements. This program enables CRE to partner with nonprofits and community-based organizations that do not otherwise have access to our consulting, coaching, and training services. These projects help the selected nonprofits further meet the needs of their target populations. Awardees are selected through a short application process. To apply, organizations are asked to define a specific project that they would like CRE’s assistance with.
