We Back Our Colleagues So They Can Back Their Communities

Our colleagues don’t just work here, they are active members of their communities. We make it easier for them to be involved through three flagship programs: Serve2Gether, Give2Gether and Green2Gether.

 

 

 

 

 

Promoting volunteering through Serve2Gether

Each year, thousands American Express colleagues roll up their sleeves and join company-sponsored community projects. Our Serve2Gether volunteer program encourages and rewards these activities, giving colleagues tools that make it easier for them to connect with and promote the causes they care about. Serve2Gether Grants takes it one step further, providing micro-grants when colleagues volunteer extensively with a specific organization. And through Serve2Gether Consulting, colleagues provide pro bono support to help nonprofits become more efficient and effective.

Sustaining the environment through Green2Gether

Green2Gether gives colleagues another avenue for making a difference. Thousands get involved every day, designing and leading environmental initiatives tailored to their workplaces and all of our communities.

In 2017 more than 20,000 colleagues participated in our Green2Gether activities during Earth Month—resulting in, among other things, the planting of over 18,000 trees.

Encouraging giving through Give2Gether

Our colleagues naturally want to give to the causes they care about, so we do everything we can to make it as easy as possible for them to do so. Each fall we hold our Give2Gether campaign across our workplaces in the U.S., Canada and India. Colleagues dig deep into their pockets to help. (American Express matches these donations to the tune of millions of additional dollars a year.) A whopping 79 percent of U.S. colleagues participated in Give2Gether last year—about 60 percent higher than the average participation rate for such company campaigns in the U.S.
