So Many Ways

To Give

The American Red Cross is able to help those affected by disasters small and large because of the generosity of the American people.

The Red Cross is not a government agency; it relies on private donations of time, money and blood to do its work.
Giving Hands with Change

Make a Donation

There’s no donation to big or too small. The American Red Cross relies on the generosity of people like you to carry out our mission.
