The Ascend Fund

About This Fund

Critical policy decisions are made in state legislatures, yet in 40 states, women hold less than 40% of the seats. Only one state, Nevada, has achieved gender parity.

The Ascend Fund works with organizations to improve the gender composition of state legislatures. We're currently working in more than a dozen states with plans to be in all 50 states by 2026. By investing in state legislatures, we’re investing in a critical pipeline to propel women to parity in all levels of government.
