Avant Care Foundation
Avant Care recognizes its role as part of a larger community. Each year, a portion of our revenue is donated to Avant Care Foundation. Avant Care Foundation upholds the mission to engage employees, invest in strategic organizations and inspire change in our global community – with the ultimate goals of helping those in need and encouraging our workforce to make a difference.
Avant Care Foundation activities closely align with our core values - Caring, Driven, and Ethical - that are inherent in our culture, help form our corporate identity, and unite us as a family with a shared cause.
These aren’t just words on paper; at Avant Care, we live them every day. One way this is demonstrated is by the investment Avant Care leadership has made through the institution of a formal, paid volunteer time-off program. Through this offering, our full-time employees are provided eight hours per year of paid service to foundation-approved activities. Avant Care Foundation also hosts internal fundraising events in sponsorship of our partner organizations.
Helping American Seniors
Avant Care Foundation takes an active role in the fight against senior hunger and isolation. Each week, a team member takes a break from their work schedules to deliver food and provide safety checks on seniors through local chapters of Meals on Wheels Association of America. Additionally, Avant Care Foundation associates engage in various social events and support activities with local senior centers, such as the Emergency Assistance Food Program.
Assisting Children with Learning
Avant Care is a major contributor to Avant Care Foundation, a nonprofit organization that provides free learning tools and stationaries to children in Africa. Lack of proper learning materials is an international issue that affects millions worldwide. The goal of Avant Care Foundation’s Every Child Matters program is to empower these children by encouraging learning and graduate into a life of freedom and self-sufficiency. Avant Care Foundation also partners with organizations to promote advocacy and prevention through education and community engagement. Avant Care Foundation also supports global efforts to end childhood hunger donating both time and resources to advocate for keeping children in schools.
In 2021, Avant Care CEO Fatai Mohammed took the journey to Africa to meet the participants of Every Child Matters program and volunteer his time. Prior to this visit, Mohammed and Avant Care Leadership have become tireless advocates, joining in events and support activities that champion the organization’s programs as well as interact with its participants. To date, Avant Care Foundation has empowered over 2000 children to encourage learning while living full, healthy lives.
Aiding Those in Need
The Avant Care Foundation Care Fund offers assistance to select associates experiencing hardship. The fund aids those in need of medical, memorial, rehabilitation, or catastrophic/natural disaster care.
