      Raising Hope to A Higher Ground

To help end gun violence in our communities and provide aspiring young students with opportunities to achieve their goals, we must do our part. We have many successes under our belt, but we need more help, and that's where you come in. 
​ While you can volunteer with us directly, you can donate items to provide needed supplies and materials for our mentorship and enrichment education programs. There's also much you can do on your own. Contact us to learn more about opportunities and ideas for donating to our fundraising efforts, events, campaigns, or how to involve your community, school or company.
​​Make a single or monthly donation directly from your bank account, credit card, or Paypal.


​​Can't spend a dime? 
Then, spend some time... helping us help those in need.


The Tiara M. Parks Uplift Foundation is a nonprofit organization with the goal of helping uplift the lives of young people that have experienced the loss of a parent, sibling, or legal guardian to gun violence. 

​Our vision is to actively engage our community and encourage them to participate in guiding our youth to a brighter future through cultural enrichment, mentoring and scholarship programs. Through your help and charitable donations, we provide students and parents affected by gun violence access to support counseling, financial assistance through scholarships, workshops, mentorship conferences and life skill coaching seminars.
Gun violence has become a huge problem in our society and it has affected the lives of many people that live within our own communities. We are working tirelessly to help end the gun violence and support the survivors in restoring their lives.
