Kristie Tanner, Director of Business Partnerships at the Humane Society of the United States accepts ACE’s $43,720 donation
DALLAS (Feb. 21, 2022) – Launched in August 2020 by ACE Cash Express (ACE), a Populus Financial Group brand, the “Chip in for Charity” program allows customers to support an ACE charity partner of their choice simply by using their co-branded charity ACE Flare® Account by MetaBank® debit card wherever they shop. When the card is swiped, ACE donates an amount equal to a portion of every purchase made to the associated charity, up to preset limits.
The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) is a valued ACE charity partner and an important part of our “Chip in for Charity” initiative. Since launching the Humane Society of the United States ACE Flare® Account by MetaBank® and Porte™ Door to Change charitable giving program, customers raised $40,861 in the first year.
Also, HSUS was selected as the charity of choice by ACE employees for its annual in-store fundraising event, the Give A Little Campaign, which raised an additional $2,859 for HSUS. By supporting the Humane Society of the United States, ACE helps protect all animals who are suffering in puppy mills, factory farms, testing labs or other inhumane situations.
“The Humane Society of the United States is grateful to be one of the chosen charities benefiting from the “Chip in for Charity” program. Our work to protect all animals is made possible thanks to generous supporters like ACE. I’m excited to see the impact this partnership has on the animals we fight to protect.” said Kristie Tanner, Director of Business Partnerships for the Humane Society of the United States.
The Humane Society of the United States fights the big fights to end suffering for all animals. Through their rescue, response, and sanctuary work, as well as other hands-on animal care services, they help thousands of animals every year. HSUS fights all forms of animal cruelty to achieve the vision behind their name: a humane society.
“We are proud to support the Humane Society in their fight to end animal cruelty,” said Eric Norrington, Senior Vice President of Public Affairs for Populus Financial Group. “Thanks to the support of our customers and employees, animals around the country have an opportunity to live without suffering.”
