We have a history of supporting our communities


American works with organizations committed to make a difference in the communities we serve.

Susan G. Komen is a nonprofit organization that is devoted to saving lives and ending breast cancer. American has partnered with the organization to bring awareness and funds to support a research grant at MD Anderson Cancer Center.

For more than 100 years, the American Cancer Society has worked to save lives and create a world with less cancer. Through events like Relay for Life and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, the organization raises awareness and funds while offering a life-changing event that both survivors and their loved ones can rally around.

The Red Cross exists to provide compassionate care to those in need and works with volunteers and companies to prevent and relieve suffering around the world through disaster relief, health services and blood donations.
