American Airlines is proud to partner with many worthy organizations to improve the communities where we live and work. There are multiple ways American customers can join in the causes that matter. AAdvantage® members can donate miles to a cause they are passionate about, or donate cash and earn miles for that next trip. Through your contributions, we can continue to make a difference in the lives of those in need.
The American Airlines Kids in Need program provides worldwide support for children and their families, as well as for organizations dedicated to improving the quality of life for children with needs for medical, educational, social services issues and/or for those that heighten public awareness of children's issues. Beneficiaries of the program include individuals as well as organizations with needs related to medical, educational and social concerns, and/or causes that heighten public awareness of children’s issues.
