Grant making


Awarding grant dollars to nonprofits is one way we strengthen our communities and help individuals on a path to financial independence. To ensure we're meeting the needs of our communities and making an even greater collective impact, we focus on three key giving areas when awarding grants.

Meeting Basic Needs

Helping people find their next meal, a place to sleep or a job that provides a livable wage.

Supporting Community Vitality

Revitalizing housing and neighborhoods and enhancing cultural awareness.

Volunteer-Driven Causes

Extending the impact of Ameriprise volunteer teams.

 

Apply for a grant

Nonprofits may submit applications anytime throughout the year. There are two grant application deadlines, January 15 and May 15. Application will be reviewed following the deadlines and decisions will be communicated approximately four months from the deadline date.
