Ameriprise Financial Community Relations Program

  • January 15, 2020

The Ameriprise Financial Community Relations Program is committed to giving back to company communities throughout the United States by supporting nonprofit organizations whose shared goal is to improve the lives of individuals from all walks of life.

The company's community outreach focuses on three key priorities:

Meeting Basic Needs
Support is provided for programs that help at-risk populations stabilize their lives and become more self-sufficient. Consideration will be given to applications that address the following:

  • Hunger
    The focus is on food banks, food shelves, food pantries, and daily meal programs or meal services for the homebound; hunger-relief programs targeted to meet the special needs of children, ethnic populations, or veterans; and food programs run by nonprofits where hunger is not their sole focus, e.g. a youth meal program at the YWCA or a backpack program run by a Boys & Girls Club.
  • Shelter
    The focus is on emergency shelter, including youth homelessness; transitional housing, permanent supportive housing, and efforts to end chronic homelessness; housing-first models; and achieving and maintaining home ownership, including repair and maintenance efforts to keep seniors, veterans, and other populations in their homes.
  • Adult Self-Sufficiency
    The focus is on programs addressing basic skills that help adults achieve economic and family stability; basic financial and budgeting skills; programs that help increase employability and wages, including work readiness and job transitions; and employment of disabled adults.

Supporting Community Vitality
Support is provided for programs that build strong communities by creating economic vitality and cultural enrichment through the following activities:

  • Community Development
    The focus is on neighborhood revitalization, economic development, and strengthening and supporting small businesses and nonprofits through technical expertise.
  • Cultural Enrichment
    The focus is on arts education, access for underserved populations, and diverse artists and performances that spark topical community conversations.

Volunteer-Driven Causes
Proposals in this category must be from the nonprofit organizations where company employees, advisors, or retirees volunteer. Minimum thresholds of Ameriprise Financial volunteer involvement is required.

Note: Eligible organizations must hold a 501(c)(3) designation from the IRS.
