At Ascendium we work to make postsecondary degrees, credentials and certificates accessible to as many students as possible. Specifically, we focus our philanthropy on helping those who traditionally have the most to gain from postsecondary education but often have the least support in getting there: students from low-income households, students of color and first-generation students.

This Report highlights our belief in leveraging existing knowledge to catalyze lasting change. In it you'll find details on several of the grants we launched in 2017 and a summary of our goals for the coming year.

We look forward to sharing more updates and results in order to make meaningful contributions to the national dialog surrounding college completion.
