Arizona chapter of national charity welcomes finance and accounting professional to its leadership team

PHOENIX, AZ, June 10, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ — Gift of Adoption Fund, a non-profit organization providing financial assistance to complete both domestic and international adoptions, is announcing the newest member of its Arizona Chapter Board. Alicia Ruttinger, a Senior Accounting Manager for Grossman Property Companies, a CPA and CISA, will help the Arizona Chapter raise funds and expand its presence across the state, uniting vulnerable children with their forever families.

As a working mom of three kids, Ruttinger wanted to help others create a family by providing monetary assistance to those in need. “What a double win—these children are our future,” said Ruttinger.

Today, there are more than 150 million orphans in the world with 400,000 children in the U.S. alone living without permanent families. Gift of Adoption puts adoption in reach for more vulnerable children by providing the final funding necessary for adoptive families to welcome a child home.

Ruttinger graduated from the University of West Florida with a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting and later received her MBA from Florida State University. She is a Senior Accounting Manager for a company in the hospitality/real estate industry. She is also a member of ISACA (Information Systems Audit and Control Association) and a proud mom to three boys, including a set of identical twins.

“I hope to one day be able to adopt a child myself, as I would love to give a child without a permanent home the gift of family, and also bring up the estrogen level in my home,” said Ruttinger.
