Do you have a passion to help support our mission?

Ashton was all about volunteerism, and that is the biggest need for the Foundation.  We will be hosting events to raise funds to support Ashton's causes.  Becoming a member of a nonprofit board as a board member or committee member can be a rewarding, high impact way that for-profit executives can do community service while learning new skills that can enhance their own careers.  If you are interested in volunteering, or being a part of our organization please send us an email to ashtonhopekeeganfoundation@gmail.com.
