The Red Cross is not a government agency; it relies on private donations of time, money and blood to do its work.
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.
Are you ready to make a difference? Fundraise for the Red Cross! Create a personal Red Cross fundraising page using Crowdrise.
Through our Giving Societies, individuals who are able to make donations over $1,000 help the American Red Cross maintain our capacity to respond immediately whenever someone is in need. Their support helps us meet critical needs for disaster preparedness and response, lifesaving training, services to military members and their families, and international humanitarian care.
Acknowledge a special occasion or honor a loved one with a memorial gift to the American Red Cross. A letter can be sent to the person being honored or a recipient of your choosing.
You can leave a legacy by planning a legacy gift. Planned gifts create opportunities for both our donors and the American Red Cross. Determining what gift is right for you is just as important as making the gift.
Did you know that many companies have matching gift programs that will double or even triple charitable contributions made by their employees?
Donating your vehicle, truck, boat or motorcycle—in any condition—is a great way to help us help others. You will receive the benefit of a tax deduction, as well as the good feeling that comes from helping your local chapter provide life-saving programs and services to our community.
The Red Cross is generally unable to accept small, individual donations or collections of items such as clothing, food or cleaning supplies. Find out why here.
