Strong communities enable thriving people and businesses. This shapes our responsibilities as a corporate citizen. Through our philanthropic and community work, we seek to strengthen communities by serving and supporting the people and organizations that are tackling some of society’s toughest challenges.
In 1954, we created the American Express Foundation, a New York-based non-profit that supports charitable organizations. Since then, together with our Foundation, we have provided nearly a billion dollars to thousands of causes around the world.
WE FOCUS OUR CHARITABLE GIVING IN THREE AREAS:
- Developing leaders: We help develop emerging leaders who are addressing society’s most complex issues.
- Preserving places: We promote stewardship of the historic places that bring value to local communities and sustain our shared cultural heritage.
- Serving communities: We enable nonprofit organizations to have a greater impact by engaging community members, including our own colleagues, as volunteers.
NoVo Foundation is dedicated to catalyzing a transformation in global society, moving from a culture of domination to one of equality and partnership. We support the development of capacities in people—individually and collectively—to help create a caring and balanced world. We envision a world that operates on the principles of mutual respect, collaboration, and civic participation, thereby reversing the old paradigm predicated on hierarchy, violence, and the subordination of girls and women.
The New York Women’s Foundation creates an equitable and just future for women and families by uniting a cross-cultural alliance that ignites action and invests in bold, community-led solutions across the city.
