This is the letter Mr. Aaron Adair received from American Express:

Mr. Adair:

Thank you for your recent letter regarding support to the Boy Scouts of America and sharing your concerns on their policies.

American Express has a global contributions program that currently makes annual contributions in excess of $30 million. We do not contribute directly to the Boy Scouts of America. We do however have several programs that either match employee contributions or direct small grants to organizations where our employees volunteer, and through these programs American Express grants have been made from time to time to local Boy Scout Chapters. Likewise, we have a strong commitment to local United Ways that in some cases also support local Boy Scout Chapters. We realize that this is a complex issue and we appreciate your taking the time to write and share your views and advise us of the steps you have taken with regard to your affiliation with the Boy Scouts.

Sincerely,
[Signed] Mary Beth Salerno
