With Colleague Contributions and Global Match Program, Amex Campaign Results in $8.9 Million in Community Giving
In American Express' annual Give2Gether campaign, more than 13,000 colleagues participated, pledging donations to their favorite non-profits and doubling their impact with the company's Global Match Program. Give2Gether is the company's traditional colleague-donation matching program that's been supporting community organizations - and our Blue Box Value to support our communities - for decades.
Pledged donations from colleagues and company matching funds will support nearly 4,000 non-profit organizations across 78 countries with $8.9 million in community giving. Give2Gether is a month-long campaign held each year across our offices in 38 countries. As a company, American Express believes it is important to put its Powerful Backing to work in our own communities.
"This is an incredible accomplishment, and it makes me tremendously proud. Each donation - big or small - makes a difference. Together, we can continue to make meaningful impacts in our communities," said CEO and Chairman Stephen J. Squeri.
