Advance Financial Receives Award for Support of the National Museum of African American Music

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Nov. 9, 2022– Advance Financial was honored by INFiN, a Financial Services Alliance and the leading national association representing the licensed consumer financial services industry, with the prestigious Activa Award, in recognition of Advance Financial’s outstanding commitment to involvement in local communities across the country.

The award was presented to Advance Financial at the MoneyTrends 2022 conference in Austin, Texas, in particular recognition of its ongoing support of National Museum of African American Music. The National Museum of African American Music encourages its visitors to discover the role African Americans have played in shaping the music industry throughout the years.

INFiN’s Activa Award is given annually to consumer financial services providers who demonstrate an exemplary commitment to giving back to the communities they so proudly serve through a wide array of community engagement and other philanthropic endeavors. The Activa Award was first established by the Financial Service Centers of America (FiSCA) – INFiN’s legacy organization – in 1999. The Activa Awards celebrate and promote better understanding of the pivotal role community-based financial services providers play in making America’s neighborhoods good places to live and work.

“The Advance Financial Foundation’s four-year commitment of support for our From Nothing to Something program will allow us to expand our reach through both in person and digital versions of the program,” said Tamar Smithers, NMAAM Director of Education. “We very grateful for this support.”

“Our foundation has a strong focus on education and health initiatives,” stated Brittni Walker, Executive Director of the Advance Financial Foundation. “We are honored to support a program that will serve as an educational tool for students in our community, which aligns with our goal of supporting organizations that are growing the minds of our children.”
