Today's Scholars. Tomorrow's Leaders.


Since 1986, ASSIST Alumni Families have stepped forward to support the organization with financial gifts. Starting with grateful families in Germany, who founded the ASSIST Förderverein, many ASSIST Alumni Families have said “thank you” by making gifts that help to ensure the vitality and future of ASSIST. Each year, over 35% of ASSIST's operating budget revenue comes from fundraising.
