Ascend is a collaboration between philanthropists, foundations and corporations concerned about the refugee situation in Greece. We put 100 per cent of every donation into the hands of people on the ground, in organizations and innovative programs that help people rebuild their lives. Our entrepreneurial approach brings together a wide array of partners that allows us to act quickly in a crisis, and stay for the long haul, constantly embracing new ideas and approaches to deliver high impact for every dollar spent.
Our mission is to help people rebuild their lives by generating livelihoods, empowering communities, supporting youth, and meeting people’s basic needs so they can live in dignity. We closely monitor and evaluate the programs we invest in, with an eye to constant innovation.
And when we see success, we share it and scale it. That’s how we help rebuild lives. Together.
