Being involved in and supporting our community is something Advance Financial believes is of paramount importance. We consider Nashville and the state of Tennessee our home, and believe in partnering with organizations in our community who complement our own goals. To that end, we are proud to partner with Volunteer Tennessee, an organization dedicated to the encouragement of volunteerism and community service in Tennessee.
Advance Financial offers support and partnerships in the following manner:
- Financial Support
- Sponsorship Requests
- Advancing Volunteerism
Chief among Advance Financial’s activities is its dedication to education. Advance Financial supports and funds a variety of educational initiatives. These programs are focused on improving the quality of education for preschool, grade school and high school students, and on making college more accessible to high school graduates.
Through the Advance Financial Foundation we invest in the communities we serve. Corporate donations and sponsorships are directed to 501(c)3 nonprofits and community enrichment programs, with a particular focus on enhancing education and healthful initiatives.

As part of our community support program, Advance Financial sponsors events and organizations that support one of our three areas of focus – education, health, or wellness. Our employees are also available as volunteers for larger projects. We will be accepting applications from January 15th through April 1st. Award notifications will be announced by April 25th, 2017.
Our employees are involved in the company’s charitable efforts with each associate being given forty (40) hours of paid Volunteer Time Off annually to volunteer in the community. We believe in going above and beyond just writing a check, we believe in rolling up our sleeves and working alongside the nonprofits we support. As a company, we volunteered 1,330 hours in 2015.
