FEEDING AMERICA is the United States’ leading domestic hunger-relief charity whose mission is to feed America's hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engage the United States in the fight to end hunger. Since 2009, Morgan Stanley and Feeding America have partnered to Fill the Plate for children across the United States. This effort provides more than 10 million meals and over 43 million pounds of produce to children and families in need. In addition to our charitable funding, totaling more than $13 million so far, Morgan Stanley employees play a critical role in the partnership, delivering strategic planning advice, research assistance, executive counseling and hands-on volunteer engagement nationwide.
KaBOOM! is a U.S.-based nonprofit dedicated to ensuring all kids, particularly the 16 million American children living in poverty, get the balance of active play they need to thrive. KaBOOM! works to create and catalyze great places to play while inspiring, empowering and leading play advocates to elevate the conversation on the importance of play in children’s lives. As a powerful champion for play since its founding in 1996, KaBOOM! has worked with partners to build, improve and open more than 15,000 playgrounds, engage more than 1,000,000 volunteers and serve more than 6,600,000 children. Morgan Stanley has already built more than 10 playgrounds nationally, making that dream a reality for more than 5,000 children.
