Why Support ASSIST?
3 Good Reasons to Support ASSIST!
- Contribute to Global Citizenship
- Change Lives; Make a Difference
- Champion the Excellence of the ASSIST Experience
As a nonprofit organization with worldwide ambitions, ASSIST depends on the generosity of people who believe in our mission to support us by making financial gifts. Typically, 35% of our operating funds come from donations. These gifts support our recruitment efforts around the globe; our work with current Scholars and member schools in the U.S.; and our ability to subsidize the experience for students from countries with emerging economies.
"I can think of no better way to make a difference in a young person's life and the life and thinking of a school than to sponsor an ASSIST Scholar. It has been my pleasure to do so for twelve years."
- J. Wood Rutter, Head Emeritus, Beaufort Academy; 30-year member of the ASSIST Board of Directors.
The name ASSIST has become synonymous in the independent school world with the highest quality of experience for both ASSIST Scholars and schools. For more than 46 years, ASSIST Scholars have been integral to schools seeking to institutionalize an international dimension. ASSIST alumni (over 4,820) occupy impressive positions around the world and across the professions as leaders, contributors, and global citizens. For each, ASSIST was a life-transforming experience and, in turn transforms the lives of others.
If the world can be changed one person at a time, ASSIST alumni will lead that vanguard! ASSIST is a worthy investment!
