Host Your Own Fundraiser

  • There are so many ways to give to the American Red Cross

Individuals and companies can raise money to support the Red Cross in a variety of ways. One way is to plan an event, large or small in scale where you raise funds for the Red Cross. Charity auctions, 5K walk/run events or trivia nights all make great Red Cross fundraisers!

The path to launching a third-party event typically begins with an idea and plan of action that is presented to the American Red Cross. All such events must be approved in advance to maintain the integrity of the American Red Cross name and commitment to cost-efficient, transparent and effective fundraising to fulfill our mission.
