Rising Star Outreach, USA

Tyler Vigue, President &Executive Director 

When the opportunity came to join the team at Rising Star Outreach, Tyler jumped at the chance to work for an organization that exemplifies the same values that he ascribes to, that all people deserve dignity and respect and that each has something to contribute to society.

Raised in New Jersey, Tyler came to Utah to study at Brigham Young University. He dabbled in various areas of scholarship before acquiescing to his love of logic, rhetoric, and critical thinking to earn a degree in philosophy. Tyler got his feet wet in the nonprofit industry holding positions in annual, major, and principal giving as an employee of LDS Philanthropies, where he achieved the internationally recognized status of Certified Fundraising Executive (CFRE). He is grateful now to be using his graduate education, an MPA from the University of Nebraska, to oversee the complex operations of an inspiring NGO.

Tyler and his wife Ali live in Provo with their six wonderful children. He speaks Latvian, loves his BYU sports teams, and desires nothing more than to help others and make the world a better place.
