Ameriprise Financial Helps Provide Five Million Meals to Families in Need


Company matching public donations to Feeding America®
now through Thanksgiving

For the seventh consecutive year, Ameriprise Financial, (NYSE:AMP) is
matching donations to Feeding America® now through
Thanksgiving.* Every dollar donated (up to $250,000) can help provide at
least 20 meals to families and individuals in need, twice the amount of
a standard donation. Participation is easy and open to the public –

"Despite the strong economy, far too many Americans struggle to get the
food they need – including a disproportionate number of veterans and
older Americans," said Brian Pietsch, head of community relations at
Ameriprise Financial. "Feeding America has a sophisticated network of
local food banks across the country that's ready to provide nutritious
foods to individuals who need it. We encourage everyone in a position to
support this important cause to join our pledge."

Since establishing a partnership with Feeding America in 2009,
Ameriprise advisors, employees, and clients have provided more than 82
million meals and have volunteered more than 287,000 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
provided more than 100 million meals to American families and
individuals, thanks to support from Ameriprise.**

between now and Thanksgiving. Gifts received after the campaign or in
excess of this amount will not be matched but will still help provide
food for those 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.
