Become an Investor -- In Ascend and in Our Future

A key part of Ascend’s approach is building a community of donors who believe in our mission of supporting emerging Democratic candidates. Our Members, Co-Chairs, and Chairs are the foundation of that community -- investors who give of their time and resources to build a pipeline of talent for the future. We’d love if you’d join us! 



Benefits of Serving as a Member, Co-Chair or Chair 

Our Founding Members will play a pivotal role in Ascend’s growth, and enjoy a number of benefits:

  • Monthly conference calls: We hold monthly briefings with elected and Party leaders, as well as with our endorsees. 

  • Input into the endorsement process: All 2018 Members, Co-Chairs, and Chairs can share input and suggestions of candidates. Chairs, Co-Chairs, and those Members who meet a certain threshold will have the opportunity to be on the interview and endorsement committee for the 2018 races.

  • VIP admission into our events: We are planning to hold 5-10 events during the course of 2018.  2018 Members, Co-Chairs and Chairs receive VIP admission to all of them.

  • Annual Retreat/Reception & Summer Reception: Each year in December, we gather all of our core investors in Washington to reflect on the past year and plan for the future, including a reception with our endorsed candidates from the prior cycle. We also hold a summer reception in Washington.
