Nurturing and Empowering Generations of Children

What will your legacy be?

Children Rising Legacy Circle members are investing in the future of our community by empowering our children — now and for years to come — to rise above the challenges created by decades of poverty, educational inequity, and deeply rooted racial injustice.

Thank you for embracing our vision for Oakland. You are empowering thousands of children and youth to build bridges to a better future.

Imagine…

  • A city where every child feels loved and safe and has reliable adults who model positive values.
  • A city where every child can develop as a whole person, body, mind, and spirit.
  • A city whose future shines brighter, one precious child at a time.

With a leap of faith, our founder Randy Roth left behind 30 years of pastoral ministry to make that vision a reality. Led by a spirit of servanthood and community engagement, Randy teamed with local school and community leaders to understand how to best support the teachers, the children, and their families. The Children Rising community enablement model was born!

A Generational Impact In Our Community

Randy retired after 15 years of tirelessly inspiring and guiding a community’s love for improving the lives of thousands of children in need. You can ensure that his original vision continues to bear fruit today and long into the future.

By becoming a Children Rising Legacy Circle member, you ensure a future where we can pair eager young learners with a caring adult. Legacy Circle members are passionate supporters who, through creating a legacy gift, will instill hope and promise in our community for future generations. There are many ways to give, such as including Children Rising in your will, or making us a beneficiary of your life insurance.

Will you invest in the future of our community by empowering our children — now and for years to come — to rise above the challenges created by decades of poverty, educational inequity, and deeply rooted racial injustice?
