“Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
– Mahatma Gandhi
At Advance Financial, we believe in good corporate citizenship. We believe we make the greatest impact in our communities when we support issues and causes that are important to our customers, our associates and the neighborhoods in which we do business.
We combine both financial and hands-on volunteer support. We encourage our employees to become involved in their local communities and support programs that make a positive difference in the lives of our neighbors. To facilitate this, AF goes above and beyond by giving employees forty (40) hours of paid time-off annually to volunteer in the community (read about some of the other benefits we offer). Some of the things we’ve done are:
- painted walls in schools
- helped make senior’s homes more energy efficient by caulking, adding insulation and installing energy efficient light bulbs
- prepared and served lunch at the Nashville Rescue Mission
- we also sponsor events and organizations that support education, health and wellness.
We say all this not to be boastful, but to encourage others to help. Volunteering can be anything from holding a door for someone, giving up your seat on an over-crowded bus, helping serve meals to seniors, donating toys to children or tutoring students after school. When we give our time and talents and reach our hand out to someone in need, we change not only ourselves, but the world around us.
