rise with us! 

Rising Above Bakery is building a self-sustaining, community-oriented service business that makes and sells the finest baked goods while employing and imparting meaningful life skills to young adults with a wide range of developmental disabilities.

While operating as a cottage bakery since 2021, we perfected a concept that can serve hundreds of people for many years to come.

Our next step: Secure and build out a storefront location in Bergen County, NJ, and put our business on a path to financial self-sufficiency. 

To get there, we are raising $750,000 to fund our physical expansion and support our first year of operations. 

Donations of any amount are welcome!
