Jeffry Schneider isn’t only the founder and CEO of the very successful company, Ascendant Capital LLC., but is also a philanthropist who donates his money and time to enumerable causes. As the head of the billion dollar boutique alternative investment company, he believes it is his duty to help others. He also believes that persistence and hard work always pay off and one of his favorite quotes comes from Calvin Coolidge who said, “Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.” Jeffry has taken these qualities to a new level by building a company that thrives on trust, excellence, transparency, and the sweat of its loyal team members.
Jeffry Schneider believes that when you make it to the top, you should send the elevator back down to help those that are still struggling. He donates to more charities than could be mentioned inside of one article, but some of these are Wonders and Worries, Camp Honey Creek’s Summer Dream program, Trinity Episcopal School of Austin, the Cherokee Home for Children, the Gazelle Foundation, Mobile Loaves and Fishes, and Gods Love We Deliver. Many of these organizations focus on helping disadvantaged and poor children and a lot of them are charities that are local to his home in Austin, Texas.
The Cherokee Home for Children, for example, aims to help children who are the victims of abuse and neglect and also provides them with an education from kindergarten all the way through high school. Wonders and Worries, which is based in Austin, helps children who have parents who have serious illness that has made it difficult to provide the care they need. Many children with parents who suffer with disease like cancer have been provided with the support, counseling, and tools they need to continue to live a happy life, despite their parent’s illness. Jeffry Schneider lives a happy life with his wife and three children in Austin, Texas, and hopes to continue making the world a better place.
