Proteus Fund: RISE Together Fund

​The RISE Together Fund, an initiative of the Proteus Fund, supports a diverse field of organizations working to address profiling, discrimination, hate crimes, Islamophobia, and xenophobia.

​Why We Invested

The RISE Together Fund (formerly the Security & Rights Collaborative), is the only national donor collaborative dedicated to supporting Muslim, Arab, and South Asian (MASA), providing strategic support with an emphasis on increasing grassroots capacity, providing communications infrastructure, creating collaboration opportunities, and resourcing rapid response to policy opportunities or threats. Democracy Fund’s Just and Inclusive Society Project works to protect communities facing threats through the public square and litigation/legal services.

The purpose of this grant is to provide support for RTF to bolster their grantmaking capacity as well as their coordination and technical support of and for their grantees
