In 2020, at the onset of the pandemic, Ascend Foundation was at the forefront of efforts to stem the tide of anti-Asian hate, creating the Ascend Impact Fund to accelerate Ascend's Five-Point Action Agenda that focuses on promoting inclusion, raising awareness, denouncing bias, supporting communities, and giving donations. The Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that strives to advocate for the community, forge allyship and foster a sense of belonging in the workplace and society at large, also initiated and engaged in a number of fundraising initiatives including the Covid-19 Relief Campaign, Feed Your Hospital, and the PPE Program.

I am so proud of the volunteer team who strive to deliver an improved event every year and to create a world class event. Thank you to all the sponsors and participants for making this event a huge success and memorable," said Hee Lee, Chair of the Ascend Charity Golf Outing Benefit Committee.
