June 9, 2020 by Jeff Berman
Ameriprise is donating an additional $300,000 to help communities, with $150,00 earmarked for COVID-19 relief and the other $150,000 targeted to support Minneapolis groups in the wake of George Floyd’s death there, it said.
The COVID-19 relief donations will be going to nonprofits in areas where the firm has a large employee presence, including the Minnesota Disaster Recovery Fund, the Robin Hood organization in New York, the Boston Resiliency Fund, the Prime Minister’s Citizen Assistance and Relief in Emergency Situations Fund in India and City Harvest London.
Ameriprise, based in Minneapolis, made its first wave of $125,000 hunger-relief grants at the start of the pandemic, while also accelerating its corporate donation schedule, making more than $2.5 million available immediately to nonprofits it supports.
