Kimble Forrister Legacy Fund

Arise has created a Legacy Fund to honor our former executive director, Kimble Forrister, whose parting wish upon his retirement in 2018 was to leave our organization well prepared to take on the next big campaign when the time is right.

In 2019, we expect unprecedented opportunities to advance our agenda for change, to make life better for people who struggle and to give every child in our state a chance at a bright future.

A donation to this fund will help secure a better future for Alabama while honoring Kimble’s 27 years at Arise. Donate to the Kimble Forrister Legacy Fund.
