The founder and CEO of Ascendant Capital LLC., Jeffry Schneider, is one of the most respected businessmen in the country, and his tireless philanthropy is a model for people to emulate, world-wide. Jeffry Schneider started out by going to the University of Massachusetts at Amherst where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in science. After that he went to work for top firms including Smith Barney, Merrill Lynch, and Alex Brown, and while there he learned valuable information about the alternative investments industry. He then spent time as part of the management teams for both Paradigm Global Advisors and Axiom Capital Management where he built relations with hedge fund managers to make sure they were the right match for the firm’s various clientele.
Jeffry Schneider is an advocate for children, and in this way he donates his time and money to charitable causes that provide relief for kids who suffer from abuse, neglect, or have parents that are going through an illness. To be sure that kids don’t fall through the cracks of society, he supports the Cherokee Home for Children and Wonders and Worries. Both of these organizations are based in his home state of Texas, and his tireless support helps children receive a proper education, get support through troubled times, and receive much needed counseling.
Jeffry Schneider also helps people who suffer in other parts of the world by supporting charitable organizations there. The Gazelle Foundation is one of these, and it is in place to ensure that the people of Burundi, East Africa have clean water. The foundation has received over $1.3 million in donations, which Jeffry is proud to be a part of, and constructs clean water systems. These systems help the people there to avoid sickness, disease, and death, and on top of serving the general population, they build up the infrastructure of the country by piping in clean water to churches, medical facilities and educational institutions.
Jeffry Schneider has made over $1 billion while heading up Ascendant, and the company plans to earn $50 million a month over the next year.
