Kevin Yang

Chief Financial Officer


Kevin graduated college studying Economics and Political Science. In college, he was involved with the Asian American and first-generation, low-income (FGLI) student communities. Within the latter, he spent his time on clubs and initiatives focused on FGLI professional development and mental health.

As a FGLI student, Kevin is excited about enabling others to achieve their potential. Since joining Rise First as Treasurer and now as its Chief Financial Officer, he has learned to build its financial foundation by managing its budget and crowdfunding campaigns. Having experienced Rise First’s evolution from an ambitious concept to an operational non-profit, he looks forward to continuing his efforts in helping the team overcome new challenges and expand its impact.
