Leave a Legacy
Make our mission a part of your lasting legacy by naming the Rising Oak Foundation in your will. Contact us to find out more about planned giving.
A gift to the Foundation’s endowment is one that continues to give, by helping ensure a perpetual and stable source of funding for our boys.
By giving together, individuals are able to pool their resources and make a larger impact than they could alone. In fact, your Giving Circle may decide to contribute enough money to join the Grant Committee, further expanding your collective philanthropic influence.
The Rising Oak Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation supporting the development of boys of African descent. Your charitable contributions are tax-deductible, to the fullest extent allowed by law. All checks should be made payable to the Rising Oak Foundation.
