Giving back is in our DNA

Our commitment to elevating opportunity doesn’t stop with borrowers, customers and grantees. It extends to the communities where we live and work.

Our Ascendium Cares program makes it easy for employees to give back to their community, whether through a United Way pledge, paid volunteer time off or collection drives that benefit an adopted nonprofit chosen by each office.
