Populus Community Commitment

Catch up on the latest business news and learn more about our charitable giving.

How We Serve Our Community

Giving back to our community is a way of life at Populus. In 2004, we established the ACE Community Fund to donate time, money, and resources to causes that matter. We find ways to contribute throughout the year, including our annual in-store fundraising campaign, Give A Little, as well as ongoing partnerships with local and national charities.

In the past 14 years, we have donated more than $7 million to National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. (NBCF) in partnership with Netspend. Our annual Pink Month fundraiser in October contributes to NBCF's mission to save lives through early breast cancer detection. Our consumers can participate as well when they make purchases with their Pink ACE Flare™ Account by MetaBank® or Pink ACE Elite™ Visa® Prepaid Card.
