Let good take flight

American volunteers

A better world

With global business comes global responsibility. As the world’s largest airline, we're proud to give back in the communities where our team members and customers live and work. We focus our efforts in 3 main areas:

  • Our heroes: Supporting U.S. military members and honoring their selfless sacrifice
  • Our wellbeing: Improving the lives of people in need
  • Our future: Meeting the needs of children through medical and educational assistance

We volunteer

Our team members do great work in their communities through volunteering, charitable giving and community outreach. Last year, employees donated more than 125,000 volunteer hours and American donated more than 20 million miles to local charities.

We give back

American proudly supports nonprofit organizations that work to make a difference in communities and provide assistance to eligible nonprofits.
