ACE's Charitable Contributions: A Closer Look

We believe that everyone should have the ability to support the causes they hold dear, either financially or through action. At ACE Cash Express, we put this belief into practice. Our company partners with non-profit organizations across the country to make a difference in our communities. From monetary donations and the charity cards we offer, we are dedicated to giving back and helping you do the same!


The ACE Community Fund

Our corporate giving program focuses on three types of community work: helping children, supporting education, and promoting financial literacy. We’ve been partnering with a variety of organizations that pursue these goals since 2004. In the past 17 years, we’ve donated more than $15 million to people in need.


There are three main avenues of giving for the ACE Community Fund beyond direct donations: our annual Give A Little Campaign, educational efforts, and our charity cards.


Give A Little Campaign

Our company is staffed by people who care deeply about their communities. Every year, our retail associates at each store choose a charity to support. During the month of May, we run in-store fundraising campaigns that benefit the organization chosen by that store’s team.


The Give A Little Campaign has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for numerous charities. Some of these non-profits include:



And many more! We are thrilled to work with people who are committed to making the world a better place. Most of all, we are so thankful for all the customers willing to “Give A Little” to make a big difference.


Educational efforts

Financial literacy is a skill that helps people reclaim their lives and further their communities. We partner with organizations, such as Back on My Feet, to offer workshops focused on financial education. In 2020, we worked with Back on My Feet to empower people to find sustainable employment during the COVID-19 pandemic. With this knowledge, communities can grow and improve from the inside out.
