Rising Higher Campaign

Training, opportunity and hope from FareStart

Help us transform lives, create a healthier community and build a lasting solution.

As long as poverty and homelessness exist in our region, FareStart will strive to do more. Rising Higher is the next step.

FareStart needs the whole community’s support to launch our new Foodservice Apprenticeship Program, build its capacity, and help our organization grow to a new level and transform many more lives every year. The incredible opportunity and support from Amazon has made this program possible, and your support is all that is needed for us to succeed in this next step in fighting poverty in our region.

Outright gifts and pledges up to three-years in duration to the Rising Higher Campaign are much appreciated, and all gift sizes are needed to support our apprentices and our growth!
