One of the things I admire most about New Sun Rising is the action behind their work. New Sun Rising accomplished more as an all volunteer led organization than many staffed organizations. Now that the group has significant staff capacity, the level of impact has grown tremendously. The best part: all of the projects are actually done by communities served. The stronger New Sun Rising is, the stronger Pittsburgh's creative class of social entrepreneurs and change agents becomes.

I joined the NSR board because of NSR's dynamic, ambitious mission, in service of a critical area of need. The organization's model for fiscal sponsorship and mentoring represents one of the best approaches a nonprofit can take: supporting individuals and projects to build their own communities. The growth of NSR in recent years and the partnerships that have formed with other organizations, businesses and civic groups show a regional recognition that NSR is on the right track. NSR has developed forward-thinking, collaborative approaches using social entrepreneurship to transform communities in new ways, and continues to explore new opportunities to pursue its mission.

NSR has given me the opportunity to enjoy the best of Pittsburgh and meet some amazing folks along the way. With so much growth + positive energy in the region, it is a great way to seed non-profit ventures and help them to succeed.

I am inspired by the talent and drive of the NSR team! Through NSR, local projects are able to benefit from 501c3 status without the headaches of cutting through IRS red tape - this is a great opportunity for small projects whose time is better spent engaging with the community, rather than fighting with applications and paperwork. I love to see NSR-sponsored projects spending their time doing what they do best!

new Sun Rising provides grass roots support and fiscal sponsorship to some of the most amazing projects in the Pittsburgh area. From a Zombie Opera, to site-specific community performance pieces, our projects help Pittsburgh become America's favorite City. We do this by being as frugal as possible to make sure our projects succeed.

However, your help is needed to make sure we can continue to provide much needed support to our projects. Check out our current projects and help us build capacity for our own organization by donating on Day of Giving and beyond.
