Donate Now

The American Red Cross is funded entirely by the generosity of donors like you. Your gift will support the lifesaving mission of the Red Cross, whether it's responding to a disaster, collecting lifesaving blood, teaching disaster preparedness and other skills that can save a life, or assisting our military members and their families.

A hot meal delivered to victims after a disaster, shelter when there is nowhere else to turn, an emergency message delivered to a member of the Armed Forces from their family – these are just some of the ways your gift can help someone in need.

When you see our license plate on the road, you’re seeing a family or individual who is making a difference in the lives of our Montana neighbors. During you next trip, remember to add a NEW category to the license plate game--how many Red Cross supporters can YOU find?
