About This Fund

Lever for Change Stronger Democracy Finalist

Rise trains and hires community college and university students to organize campaigns focused on eliminating tuition and fees, expanding financial aid and ending student hunger and homelessness, and getting out the vote. Rise also created the Student Navigator Network to provide case management and one-on-one assistance to students affected by COVID-19. Although Rise students work nationwide, our primary focus states in 2020 are California, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.


Lever for Change was founded as a nonprofit affiliate of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation in 2019. Our mission is to tackle the world’s biggest problems—including issues like racial equity, gender equality, access to economic opportunity, and climate change.
