NAPLES, FLA—October 30, 2017—ACI Worldwide (NASDAQ: ACIW), a leading global provider of real-time electronic payment and banking solutions, today presented a check on behalf of its employees in the amount of $40,461 to the American Red Cross at its Naples-based global headquarters.

The total includes $20,461 raised through employee donations from late August through early October, dedicated to help victims of recent disasters, including Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria, as well as the Mexico earthquakes. ACI Worldwide matched employee donations with a $20,000 corporate donation to support the American Red Cross’ general disaster relief fund, which is also supporting victims of the Las Vegas shooting and California wildfires.

The check was presented on behalf of ACI’s 4,000+ employees to Jill Palmer, executive director, American Red Cross Florida Southern Gulf Chapter by Phil Heasley, president and CEO, ACI Worldwide and other executives, along with ACI employees based in the company’s Naples headquarters.

According to the American Red Cross, the funds ACI Worldwide raised will help support, among other activities, the distribution of millions of relief items and meals in areas impacted by the recent hurricanes and other disasters.

ACI is a global company, and we are dedicated to helping those in need around the world,” said Phil Heasley. “This effort was driven by our employees, and, at a corporate level, ACI is proud to support them and this cause.”
