WHO ARE WE?
Arise is a charitable
trust established in December 1986 to provide financial
to women who wish to meet their full potential in life,
but need a helping hand. We're your South Whidbey connection
in a growing national network of women's foundations
seeking to give women's issues increased financial support.
HOW CAN WE HELP YOU?
Our goal is to provide
financial incentives to girls, women and tax-exempt organizations
which serve them on South Whidbey, in order to:
self-improvement and career development;
Assist women in getting
the education or training they need for career development,
by paying grants, scholarships or subsidies;
needs as appropriate and needed; such as child care, tuition,
study material, transportation and rent while women attend
a qualified educational or vocational training institution;
Find ways to prevent
potential problems common to women and girls who lack
education, training or achievement due to social, economic
or cultural conditioning, through intervention, education
and non-profit enrichment programs which help women improve
their ecnomic or social status;
Provide grants to
tax-exempt organizations that develop or provide such
programs for women; or that provide early training in
childhood or adolescence for young women to help them
identify their skills and creative interests, and gain
self-worth, human understanding and opportunities for
learning non-traditional or innovative occupations.
