Ascendium’s operations are grounded in the belief that every individual has potential to contribute meaningfully to their community and society. The group works to unleash that potential through the power of higher education, and to eliminate barriers that stand in the way of its fulfillment. Since 2006, Ascendium’s philanthropy program has committed more than $325 million in grant funding aimed at exploring, validating and scaling evidence-based strategies for overcoming systemic obstacles to completion of postsecondary education, particularly for students from historically underserved populations.
