Our Customers love the Results

Stephen Chenier
Ontario Curling Association

The return from this 50-50 program will be the lifesaver that each of our independently operated member clubs need and will result in a healthy return to sport for our youth participants across Ontario.

Brandon Osborne
Windsor Regional Health Foundation

Right from the start we received excellent customer service from Ascend. They have a great team that works with you not for you and we could not be happier with the results!

Robert Pye

Catch the Ace is helping the OFAH achieve two priorities: online engagement and online fundraising. The game is exciting and Ascend is so easy to work with to increase support for our conservation cause

Monica Leyba
Arizona Humane Society

Working with Ascend has been a great experience.  I have very high expectations for myself when it comes to building out programs and must admit I was impressed with the quality of work and effort put in by the Ascend team – especially their web designers.

Jess Rheault
Lake of the Woods Foundation

This is an exciting time for us. The program has also given us something else that we love about our jobs once a month, after each draw, we get to call someone and change their life.
