Charity Certificate offer valid through 11/30/09. Charity Certificates are issued by JustGive Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation registered in the state of California, with the cooperation of American Express through Members Give. Visit https://amex.justgive.org/about/toc.jsp for more information.
For dollar donations: A transaction fee of 2.25% will be deducted from the donation to cover processing costs. The charities will receive your donation amount, minus the 2.25% American Express processing fee, from our partner JustGive. This transaction fee is similar to or less than the processing fee the charity would pay if you were to charge your donation with your American Express® Card through any other means (i.e. over the phone to the charity, through the charity's website, etc.). The full amount of your dollar donation, including the amount of the transaction fee, is tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
For Membership Rewards® point redemptions: There is no processing fee for donations made through the redemption of Membership Rewards points. The charities will receive $10 for every 1,000 points you redeem. Please consult your tax advisor regarding the tax deductibility of a donation made using Membership Rewards points. Terms and Conditions for the Membership Rewards program apply. Visit membershiprewards.com/terms for more information.
*Not all American Express Cards are eligible to earn rewards. Terms, conditions, and restrictions apply to individual Card products.
