American Express Philanthropy
American Express is a huge advocate of community involvement. Currently, AMEX has given grants to hundreds of nonprofit companies. They gave $25,000 to A Better Chance of New York, $30,000 to Mi Casa Resource Center for Women, and a very generous donation of $130,000 to Aid to Artisan. By encouraging the employees and the members of the community to engage in supporting these organizations, AMEX also encourages good citizenship. AMEX serves communities in times of emergency relief and natural disasters. Their goal is to provided leaders with practical opportunities to learn and build leadership skills. Their program is to help leaders in diverse communities and designed to target emerging nonprofit leaders in arts, environment, higher education and social service sectors.
