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

In 2021, Ameriprise will have two grant application deadlines, January 15, 2021 and May 15, 2021. If you are a prior Ameriprise grant recipient, you are encouraged to apply under the same application deadline you applied under in 2019. Ameriprise gives strong consideration to applicants where our employees and advisors serve as volunteers.
