FOUR CORE PROGRAMS
We engage Finance of America employees in all of our strategic initiatives with local nonprofits, including grant-making, volunteering and fundraising. We also have an Employee Assistance Fund to meet the health and welfare needs of our employees.
Community Impact Grants
Building strong communities through grant-making to nonprofits in the following three focus areas; Veterans, Youth and Human Services
Serving the emerging and long-term needs of our nation’s veterans and their families. In an effort to recognize the sacrifices they and their loved ones have made on behalf of our country, we proudly support active military personnel, veterans, and their families on a local level. We provide resources to nonprofit veteran’s services organizations whose programs connect veterans and their families facing hardships to an array of critical human services.
Empowering our youth to become compassionate and responsible members of society. The future drivers of change for the development and stability of our country are today’s youth. We support life-enhancing programs that engage youth within their communities, schools, social groups, and families, that are positive and constructive to the development of their character, and enable all young people to reach their full potential.
Enhancing access to basic needs for underserved individuals and families. Human services strives to meet basic human needs by focusing on prevention as well as remediation of problems. We are committed to improving the overall quality of life for individuals and families at their point of most urgent need. To achieve this, we engaged in numerous initiatives with nonprofits whose programs and services work to prevent or end homelessness.
Employee Assistance Fund
Finance of America takes pride in its staff – their energy and skills are key in helping to fulfill our mission to strengthen our communities, enrich lives, and inspire caring. We recognize that employees may experience hardships that require emergency financial assistance. The Finance of America Cares Employee Assistance Fund (EAF) is a program designed to support our valued staff in times of unexpected financial hardship. A minimum of 25 percent of all employee and company contributions are allocated towards our EAF.
Team Member Volunteering
We created the The Team Member Volunteer Program to provide Finance of America employees the opportunity to be a part of the transformative power of donating their time and energy toward charitable causes through volunteerism. From organizing libraries, and providing food to the hungry, to walking rescue dogs, we encourage our team members to choose activities that match their interests.
Employee Giving and Fundraising
Employees are invited to voluntarily donate to Cares through payroll deductions or individual contributions. Up to 75 percent of employee and corporate contributions are distributed amongst regions to nonprofits through Community Impact Grantmaking. The remaining net income, a minimum of 25 percent, will be reinvested into the welfare of Finance of America employees across the nation, through the Employee Assistance Fund.
“I believe what makes our company’s nonprofit, Finance of America Cares, so unique is that it includes activation from Finance of America employees at every level, as well as being central to every core decision. In doing so, we are able to unite each region’s commitment to local causes under one nationwide philanthropic umbrella, and strengthen communities everywhere at a higher level of impact.” – Ashley Pruitt, Cares Program Director

Ashley Pruitt | Program Director
There is nothing quite like the nonprofit sector. I feel incredibly fortunate that I get to make a positive difference each and every day of the week. Throughout the course of my career, I’ve worked at Susuan G. Komen, the University of Central Florida, and United Way. I’m currently responsible for the complete oversight of Finance of America Cares, all while strengthening partnerships within the community through the promotion and presentation of the vital programs that live within the organization. I am absolutely honored to be a part of the team leading numerous strategic philanthropic initiatives with FOA Cares, and employees of Finance of America. I earned both my bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies, and Master’s in Nonprofit Management from the University of Central Florida (Go Knights!). I’m a native Floridian, and currently live in Tampa, Florida with my two rescue mutts.
