“The Ascension Fund Grant has allowed me to introduce reading to my students in a way that is both fun and innovative. The Kindles allow reader interaction with books and magazines, and the availability of nearly limitless material ensures I have something interesting and appropriate for every student to enjoy.”
- Valerie Comeaux, Central Middle

Fundraiser


Whether you’d like to be a spectator or sponsor, The Ascension Fund’s annual Ascension Idol fundraising event is your chance to get involved.

Each year, Ascension Parish school students ages 13-18 have the opportunity to audition for their chance to sing on stage and win prizes. The event raises money for the Ascension Fund through sponsorship, event ticket sales and online voting prior to the final, public concert. All proceeds from Ascension Idol benefit our not-for-profit organization.
