For the 11th Consecutive Year, Ameriprise Financial Will Match Donations to Feeding America® Now Through October 31
to families and individuals in need
“Far too many people in America face hunger – one in ten households** – and their need has only intensified in recent years. High inflation and continued supply chain disruptions mean that people who are struggling financially are spending even more of their hard-earned dollars buying food and other essentials,” said Brian Pietsch, Head of Community Relations at Ameriprise. “The Feeding America network of local food banks is able to source food and other essential items at substantially lower prices and efficiently deliver it to the families and individuals who need them most. We invite all who are able to give to join us in making a donation.”
Since establishing a partnership with Feeding America in 2009, Ameriprise advisors, employees and clients have helped provide more than 113 million meals and volunteered more than 363,000 hours to support Feeding America and other hunger-relief organizations nationwide. The Ameriprise matching campaign was established in 2010 to encourage additional donations to Feeding America. In total, the campaign has helped provide approximately 207 million meals to people facing hunger across the U.S.
In addition to the matching campaign, Ameriprise is partnering with Feeding America for its 13th year of hosting National Days of Service, which will be on November 3, 2022. This nationwide volunteer effort will bring together thousands of Ameriprise employees, advisors, and clients – both virtually and in-person events – ahead of the holiday season to help people facing hunger.

*About the Match: Ameriprise Financial has committed $250,000 to Feeding America. This amount will be used to double the impact of gifts received between Sept. 1, 2022 and Oct. 31, 2022. Gifts received after the campaign or in excess of this amount will not be matched but will still help provide food for people in need. Currently, $1 helps provide at least 10 meals secured by Feeding America on behalf of local member food banks. Historical meal equivalencies vary and are updated each year.
