Philanthropy Rising will do much more than raise funds. Philanthropy Rising will uplift your community and elevate your leadership.

Based on my more than 50-year experience as a lay Federation fundraiser and officer and a synagogue Board Chair and Development Chair I can state comfortably that Eileen Aroesti, the principal of Philanthropy Rising, ranks with the best of the best development professionals with whom I have ever worked.

I congratulate Eileen on creating Philanthropy Rising.  She did an excellent job of developing a “Culture of Giving” at VBS and I am confident that she will do so for your synagogue.    


A Long Time Temple Judea Member

I know what an asset she was to Temple Judea and now, with her at the helm of Philanthropy Rising, I know she will bring each synagogue she touches to greater financial and relational heights than they have previously experienced.
