ALTA established the Foundation in October 2020 to bolster the charitable efforts of title and settlement professionals and help with housing needs as well as those adversely impacted by national emergencies such as the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Foundation's grant application process will be open twice annually with deadlines of January 31 and July 31. The first grant application cycle opened December 1 and will close January 31.
"Our title agents are participants in their communities beyond the real estate transaction," said Steve Day, President of National Agency Operations for the FNF Family of Companies.

The FNF Family of Companies is proud to support the ALTA Good Deeds Foundation to help our industry do even more for communities we live, work and play in. I encourage all members of the land title insurance industry to get involved in this important effort by donating today."
"The Foundation will award grants and support title professionals as they work to build and strengthen their local communities and exemplify the title industry's values of We Lead, We Deliver, We Protect," said ALTA CEO Diane Tomb.
