Rising Stars believes that we can make our world a better place by helping our children shine and grow.
Established in 2011, Rising Stars was founded on the personal giving philosophy of the Oliver T. Carr, Jr. family that believes every child is a miracle who deserves a proper education in order to become a thriving member of society. Rising Stars raises money to support organizations which help “at-risk” children succeed in their education and their community. It’s simple really – Rising Stars believes that a solid education is an at-risk child’s best opportunity for a better life. By supporting educational programs, Rising Stars helps children believe in themselves and have the knowledge to live up to their potential.
Rising Stars truly believes by helping children rise up through education and creating a life-long love of learning, we will help our nation continue to grow and succeed. Along with corporate partners including Carr Workplaces, Rising Stars holds a number of fundraising educational drives throughout the year.
