New York, February 21, 2023 – Wealthspire Advisors LLC, an NFP company and independent registered investment adviser firm, today announced a new partnership with Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin, the largest hunger-relief organization in the State of Wisconsin, to drive awareness and help feed more families in their community.
“Food insecurity is a significant issue in households across the U.S. and is definitely felt here in Wisconsin,” said Kevin Moloney, Managing Director at Wealthspire Advisors. “We are proud to partner with Feeding America (Eastern Wisconsin) in their efforts to reach more families in need and look forward to supporting them throughout the year with multiple initiatives that drive awareness and encourage people to get involved.”
Currently, 34 million people in the United States, including 9 million children, are facing food insecurity. Among Feeding America network food banks, 90% reported an increased or sustained need over the last month. Food banks themselves face mounting headwinds as food donations decline and costs rise for freight, food purchase, and every other aspect of operations. Wealthspire Advisors serves clients across the country and globally and is committed to giving back and making a difference in our communities as volunteers, sponsors, patrons, and board members.
“Everything we do as a food bank is focused on maximizing our Impact on our Wisconsin neighbors in need,” said Patti Habeck, President and CEO of Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin. “Partnering with companies such as Wealthspire Advisors makes a huge difference locally and really aids in our fight against hunger.”
The partnership began in February with a corporate food match and fundraiser, with the firm also supporting Coach Bud’s Assist for Hunger Annual Dinner in March, benefitting Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin and hosted by head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks, Mike Budenholzer.
Wealthspire Advisors will also volunteer on multiple days in the coming months. More events and initiatives are yet to be announced.
