The Raise The Caliber® initiative is a family of passionate creatives dedicated to bringing the topic of gun violence to light through their work. They work in close cooperation with partner police departments and with the higher purpose to help get illegal guns off America’s toughest streets and save lives.
The goal of Raise The Caliber® is to empower people to take action, bring them together to talk about guns, gun violence and what we as individuals can do to address the problem.
Each artist uses their distinct medium to transform ugly into beautiful. These guns, instruments once used for destruction and intimidation, are now used to create art that has the power to inspire hope, heal and save lives.
All guns used in Raise The Caliber® collections have been bought off the streets of the toughest cities in America through voluntary gun buyback and amnesty programs we have financed.
The Caliber Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) dedicated to support the victims, families and communities affected by illegal gun violence in America. The charity joins forces with a variety of local organizations within partnered cities. Just as the Caliber Collection® creates opportunities for those who may never have walked the streets of America’s most dangerous cities to participate in making those cities a safer place, the Caliber Foundation connects anyone who donates with the organizations and people on the front lines of re-building lives one small act at a time. Every day in this country lives are lost, and hearts are broken, the Caliber Foundation offers a helping hand when it is needed, acts of generosity on the parts of many, to help families and communities heal and work together to Raise The Caliber®.
