Your philanthropic involvement with the American Red Cross is a meaningful and effective way to invest in the welfare of the community. Listed below are some of the ways you can engage individually, with your corporation, or through inspirational events.
Event Sponsorship – The Red Cross hosts special events to help raise critical funds for our many lines of service. Whatever your preference, sponsoring an event hosted by the American Red Cross is a great way to make an unrestricted gift to the Red Cross, make your company a visible partner, and enjoy a top-notch experience for you and your guests. Sponsorship Opportunities.
Corporate Sponsorship - Become part of the largest humanitarian network in the world—one that reaches into your home community and around the world by making a philanthropic donation. Consider becoming a Ready 365 partner to help make sure the American Red Cross is ready to serve the community 365 days a year. You might also consider sharing a portion of the proceeds from the sale of your products, services or event tickets.
Individual Giving - We rely on the generosity of the American public to help people in need every day. With your generous financial support, the Red Cross provides people in crisis with relief for today and hope for tomorrow. There are many ways you can support the American Red Cross through a personal gift to those in need. Through online donations, donor advised funds, phone, or mail, your support matters.
Planned Giving - Gift plans create opportunities for donors and the American Red Cross. Determining what gift is right for you is just as important as making the gift. There are many options from which you can choose. The correct plan balances what you wish to accomplish for yourself, your family, and your charitable interests as part of your overall estate and financial plans.
Vehicle Donations - Your donation of a used car, truck or boat to the American Red Cross Vehicle Donation Program helps the Red Cross prevent and alleviate human suffering in the face of emergencies. Donating your vehicle—in any condition—is another great way to help us help others.
