Impact Projects

American Express cardholders have offered projects that they hope will make a positive impact on the world. The top five projects selected will be funded with $2.5 million after cardholders vote from the top 25 by September 29th in the “Members Project.” Since July, the “Members Project Advisory Panel” determined the top 25 projects from the more than one thousand projects that were submitted. Cardholders can vote for their favorite project by registering at “” and clicking on the star next to the project of their choice. Cardholders may vote once during each voting phase but everyone, even those without an AmEx card, can use the many social networking tools and online discussion boards to raise awareness and spur dialogue about their favorite project. The top 5 projects that receive the most votes will advance to the next phase and, ultimately, the organization associated with the project with the most votes as determined by cardholder votes will receive $1.5 million in funding, and
the organizations associated with the remaining four projects will receive $500,000, $300,000 or $100,000 in funding from AmEx, based on the cardholder votes. For more information visit: “”:
