Ascend Cares Foundation

The Ascend Cares Foundation is about making a difference in the lives of others. It is led by Ascend employees and supports Ascend families in their time of need, provides inspiring opportunities for community engagement and facilitates community leadership. Funded entirely by donations and company match, every dollar donated to the foundation supports the work of the foundation.

Ascend Cares was founded in 2011 after a tornado outbreak in northern Alabama impacted Ascend’s team members and their families near the Decatur facility. Since then, Ascend employees have made a tremendous impact on families in need and their local communities.
