Giving Back

Ally Financial strives to support and strengthen communities. The Ally Community Relations program includes corporate grants and the SmartEdge financial literacy program.

The Community Relations program focuses on areas that are closely aligned to Ally businesses.

In addition to offering corporate grants, Ally employees are encouraged to give back to communities through volunteer events and fundraising. Ally offers an employee volunteer match program in which the company financially matches the time and money employees donate to charities.

Financial Literacy - SmartEdge

As a financial services company, Ally Financial provides consumers with the tools and information they need to make educated decisions about their personal finances. Ally supports financial literacy through its SmartEdge program and through corporate grants.

The SmartEdge program offers a financial literacy curriculum at seminars, community events and its Web site. SmartEdge was first introduced in 2002 as an education tool for automotive financing and has since been expanded to include information on credit, budgeting, home buying, insurance and banking.

SmartEdge focuses on teaching consumers how to establish good credit, manage a budget and evaluate financing options. The curriculum and consumer tips are available at no cost, and the Web site features online tutorials.

Grant Submissions

Grant requests can be submitted using the Letter of Inquiry form. Ally's Community Involvement Council evaluates all grant submissions.
