Our intentions are simple. Raise awareness of the incredibly important work being done by selfless people under the banner of selfless organizations. Raise funds for these organizations with the support of T/K and the community.
WE RISE BY LIFTING OTHERS UP
So many organizations are doing amazing things to raise up people, communities, the planet. But sometimes we are so busy, so distracted, we are unaware of their work and their needs. It’s our intention to give them a boost so the network grows as does its effect.
Beyond awareness, organizations need funds to do all their amazing work. To nourish, cloth, educate, protect, plant, revitalize. It’s heavy lifting. So the least we can do is put our expertise and our funds behind it to get you to do just a little of the same.
They are everywhere … friends, family, neighbors, clients, social media buds, even total strangers of our TKers who call out an organization of their affiliation to raise up with your help.
How you can help
Visit TKRaise.com each month to see what incredible organization is on a “Raise Up” campaign. We don’t expect you to donate every time, but we hope you will share the raise with those who may.
A collection of the causes and organizations that T/K Raise has supported so far
Families First offers a combination of services and support to help build resilient families and ensure foster and underserved youth are successful and independent by young adulthood. Through collaborations with community partners, virtual services, and locations throughout the state of Georgia, Families First is able to impact youth and families by providing counseling services, health and wellness education for pregnant teens, early childhood education, life skills for youth in foster care, parenting classes, supportive housing, and adoption facilitation and placement.
The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is dedicated to saving lives and bringing hope to those affected by suicide, including those who have had a loss. AFSP creates a culture that’s smart about mental health through education and community programs, develops suicide prevention through research and advocacy, and provides support for those affected by suicide.
Every non-profit in the country was tested by the losses and disruptions of COVID-19. Here in Atlanta, Jewish Family & Career Services (JF&CS) kept true to its mission of improving the quality of life and building self-sufficiency for so many families. Before, during and after the pandemic, JF&CS offered critical services—in fact, the only thing that changed was how they provided services.
Here in the states, many of us sit and watch the war in Ukraine in horror and wonder how we can help. There are many organizations doing great things for the people of Ukraine, and after all of this is said and done, many more will be needed to help rebuild that beautiful country. For this fundraiser we highlight the efforts of Mission to the World and all that they are doing for Ukrainians.
During the pandemic, Metro Atlanta neighborhoods, shops, and restaurants quickly became a haven. From to-go drink windows to yoga in the park, our small business community made sure we had opportunities to safely leave the house and find some change of scenery when we craved it. ATL Family Meal gives back to those who had our back – providing meals to more than 500,000 front-line hospitality workers and families – and creates a network of leaders to address the issues the restaurant industry faces today.
What was once a small donation to four thoughtful organizations each year as YouthWorks became Cause T/K, a focused effort on helping two organizations with a services. We acknowledge those organizations we have supported in the past for all the they do.
