We're a true partner

The Ascend Difference

The Ascend Program

Fundraising Solution

At Ascend we love three things - working with great partners, delivering outstanding fundraising results and having our clients experience all the added thrills that come with an online raffle or lottery based program.

We Win With You

We're in it for the long haul

We get to Know You


We are 100% committed to your success, and that starts the first time you talk to us. We'll go over your goals and expectations, and tell you whether an Ascend program can help you meet (or exceed!) those expectations.

If we aren't reasonably certain that your program will be a success, we'll tell you - we're not in the business of having you sign up with us only to be disappointed.

The vast majority of our clients have run multiple programs on our platform over a period of years. Creating a stable, predictable, and recurring source of donation revenue is what we do.

Schedule a call with us to see how we can help you.

Pay for Performance


Our fee comes directly out of the proceeds of the
campaigns.  This minimizes any up-front costs to you and puts the accountability on us to deliver along with you.

Our pricing model ensures that our incentives are aligned with yours - the more you get, the more we get.

Serious Expertise


With over 10 years in the gaming-based fundraising business, and having raised close to $1 billion with over 500 charities and not for profits we know a thing or two just about everything in this space.

  • Dedicated Customer Success Manager

  • The Ascend Platform

  • Robust Administrative and Financial Reporting

  • Program Planning and Strategy

  • Easy Online Management

  • Built-in Integrations

Working with Ascend the 600 seat small-town Imperial Theatre grew monthly 50/50 gross sales from $26,000 in month 1 to $126,000 in month 4 to over $800,000 in month 5 where it awarded a Jackpot of $400,000 to a lucky local donor.

In 2021 they are on pace to drive over $6 million in 50/50 gross sales.

 It all started with one phone call with Ascend.

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
Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters

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.
