Welcome to the UpTogether Community!
Share and seek support to accomplish your goals!
UpTogether is not a traditional nonprofit.
At UpTogether, we understand that hardworking people, families and communities don’t need more programs, charities or well-meaning people to try to rescue them. They have knowledge, power and solutions and are taking steps every day to accomplish their goals.
At UpTogether (formerly Family Independence Initiative), we highlight, invest in and accelerate those initiatives so people in financially under-resourced communities can move up, together.
Build Community with
The UpTogether Community
Our signature platform, the UpTogether Community, is a place where you can build and strengthen your social networks so you, your friends, family and neighbors can support each other and reach your financial and personal goals.
The platform is in its infancy right now and we’re excited that our members are helping us design new features and enhancements to improve the UpTogether Community experience.
When funds are available, UpTogether Community members can receive capital (cash offers) in recognition of what they are doing. We trust that they know how to best use this investment, so they can spend it on whatever they want. Cash offers generally depend on your location and household income.
How Does the UpTogether Community Work?
*Capital is not guaranteed. It depends on the availability of funds and household income.
^Accepting a cash offer from UpTogether may impact your public benefits and state and local income taxes. Please speak with your case manager and/or a qualified tax professional if you have questions about whether money from an offer will affect you.
What UpTogether Members are Saying
“This is an experience that you will never regret. UpTogether supports sharing resources that help us get ahead and improve our lives. UpTogether is undoubtedly a support to move forward in life.”
“To see people not have to ask or go through creditory systems. Knowing what everyone’s challenges and goals were and being able to [use our UpTogether cash investments how we wanted], but also get emotional support [are benefits of] by being in the group.”
