American Express makes grants in three key areas: Historic Preservation, Leadership, and Community Service (specifically relief and recovery efforts).

Historic Preservation:
They support organizations and projects that preserve or rediscover important cultural works and major historic sites in order to provide ongoing access and enjoyment for current and future audiences. The programs supported include a broad range of arts and culture: from historic landmarks and public spaces to dance, theater, music, film and the visual arts. They emphasize preserving works that represent a range of diverse cultures.

They are interested in proposals that cultivate leadership opportunities for diverse communities within the nonprofit sector or that focus on innovative leadership development programs for emerging leaders of world-class institutions. They specifically target programs for emerging nonprofit leaders in the arts, environment, higher education and social service sectors. They will accept a limited number of requests for programs impacting emerging leaders of the public sector.

Community Service:
They serve communities by supporting immediate and long-term relief and recovery efforts to help victims of natural disasters. Funding also goes to support preparedness programs that allow relief agencies to be better equipped in responding to emergencies as they occur.
