Philanthropy and major gifts
Donations of this kind can be transformational in changing the lives of young Australians
A major donation to Raise is an investment that can help and save lives of young people as well as creating thriving communities across Australia.
With the future generation front and centre in our effort, there is also a beautiful ripple effect that comes from supporting the wellbeing and future of today's teens. The mentors, the schools and the parents connected to these young people also experience a range of positive outcomes that benefit their lives and everyone around them – the impact you make runs deep into the community and lasts for a lifetime. Equipping young people for the future, your impact is long lasting and hopefully is also passed on to the generations to come.
We measure, report and track our impact for young people and across the community, so we’ll be able to share with you first-hand how you are making a difference.
"The Graf family believes it is important to help those in need, especially our youth and young children. We support a number of organisations in this area, but are especially proud of Raise and the work that they do.
We believe Raise is an organisation with strong governance, efficient practices and passionate people that allows them to drive effective outcomes, positively impacting and possibly saving, the lives of thousands of young adults. The Graf family is proud to be able to support Raise to achieve its goal of expanding their programs and helping all who need early intervention, evidence-based mentoring across Australia."
The Graf family has supported Raise since 2017 through their family foundation and have provided invaluable stability for our organisation in several ways. Their generous support has meant that we have been able to match more than 145 young people with a Raise mentor. Their support each year has meant that we can reliably plan to reach more young people.
More than just their financial support, members of the family have acted as valuable mentors to our staff, guiding them on how to develop better relationships, and through participation in our Fundraising Advisory Council, giving advice to our Board of Directors on private philanthropy and fundraising. This kind of partnership means the world to us and helps us make a greater impact on so many young people.
We are ever grateful for the philanthropic contributions that our donors make towards the work we do. Gifts large and small go such a long way in an organisation like Raise.
