Washington, DC – June 2, 2014 – Charities Aid Foundation of America (CAF America) and TRUiST, Inc. have announced a partnership that will expand CAF America’s offerings to include an employee giving component and will enhance TRUiST’s ability to disburse donations to an international network of charities.

This partnership comes on the heels of TRUiST’s acquisition by FrontStream Holdings, LLC (dba FrontStream Payments). In addition to the 20,000 nonprofit clients that made up FrontStream’s portfolio, the TRUiST acquisition added an employee engagement and workplace giving component consisting of corporate clients who are disbursing an average of $230 million to nonprofit organizations on an annual basis. The partnership with CAF America now gives those corporations the ability to run workplace giving campaigns that will benefit an additional 181,000+ charitable organizations that reside outside of the United States and Canada.
