[ our programs ]
We ask for your financial support to assist RISE in pursuing its mission, providing micro-business entrepreneurship opportunities, access to capital and financial education to underserved communities throughout Los Angeles County. These programs are more important than ever. RISE’s unique programming has withstood the test of time, serving 67% women and 96% African American and Latino populations. Since it’s founding in 1992, RISE Financial Pathways (formerly Los Angeles Community Reinvestment Committee D/B/A Community Financial Resource Center (CFRC)) has served over 108,000 local residents and delivered over $10.4 Million in micro and small business loans.
