WHAT WE FUND

Greater Opportunity Through Postsecondary Education and
Workforce Training

A postsecondary credential — be it a college degree, apprenticeship, job training certificate or technical diploma — remains the most reliable ladder to economic stability. But starting it is not enough. Completion is the key.

FALLING SHORT OF COMPLETION IS COSTLY

Income potential is stymied. Self-worth suffers. And compounding it further: the potential of student debt that may be difficult to repay.

That's why Ascendium supports an education philanthropy that has just one goal: helping students from low-income households complete postsecondary education or workforce training.

"With everything we do, we are always mindful that moving students towards greater opportunity in life benefits us all."
