Raise is (usually) a transitive verb that means lift, heighten, or promote. Rise is an intransitive verb that means to get up or increase.
In the U.S. and Canada, an increase in salary is called a raise. In the U.K., it's a rise.

As I know

- Raise = move to a higher position
+ Raise + Object
Ex: The landlord raises my rent again.
- Rise = move upward by itself
+ Rise can't not be used with an object
Ex: The sun is rising.
