  • Ameriprise Financial Helps Strengthen Communities Through Donations and Volunteerism

    February 11, 2020 by Ameriprise Financial, Inc.

    MINNEAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–In 2019, Ameriprise Financial, Inc. (NYSE: AMP), along with its employees and advisors, donated $17.5 million and volunteered close to 100,000 hours at nonprofits in their communities. As a leader in financial planning, the firm focuses on philanthropic causes that strengthen communities and help individuals achieve economic stability. To that end, throughout the year, Ameriprise helped provide nearly 8 million meals to hungry families and individuals through its longstanding partnership with Feeding America and other hunger-relief organizations. In addition, the company continued its ongoing support for the American Red Cross Disaster Relief and International Services, which provide aid when disaster strikes around the world.

    Ameriprise employees and advisors once again demonstrated a deep commitment to the causes they care about. More than two-thirds (68%) participated in the firm’s annual giving campaign, far surpassing the national average of 39%1. In addition, more than 10,000 Ameriprise advisors, employees and clients volunteered in the firm’s two National Days of Service, working side-by-side at food banks and pantries to provide meals for people struggling with hunger.

    “Millions of people each year find themselves turning to nonprofit organizations to build a better future for themselves and their families,” said Brian Pietsch, head of community relations at Ameriprise. “The organizations we support help people learn skills to land a higher-paying job, provide meals to hungry families and offer a place to sleep when there’s nowhere else to turn. Notably, these nonprofits are doing critical work to address socioeconomic factors that lead to poverty. We’re proud to support their very important missions.”

    Corporate grants help families and individuals achieve stability
    The Ameriprise grant program supports causes that help end domestic hunger, provide essentials for those in need and create vibrant communities. In 2019, the company funded 247 grants. A few of the highlights include:

    Project for Pride in Living – Minneapolis, Minn.
    Project for Pride in Living (PPL) helps disrupt poverty for individuals and families with lower incomes by providing affordable housing and career readiness services to create long-term stability and self-reliance.

    Fresh Start Women’s Foundation – Phoenix, Ariz.
    Fresh Start Women’s Foundation provides educational resources and support for women to improve self-confidence, life skills and career opportunities.

    Northwest Harvest – Seattle, Wash.
    Northwest Harvest helps hungry people across the state of Washington access nutritious food through a network of 375 food banks, meal programs and high-need schools. Approximately 2 million meals are provided through the network every month.
