Donating Stock
Individuals may donate appreciated stock or mutual funds to the American Red Cross. Such gifts can have significant tax advantages over cash. The Red Cross would be happy to provide more details on how to make such a gift, and we can work directly with you or your broker to make the transfer happen. To learn more click here.

Donating Goods
The American Red Cross does not accept or solicit small quantities of individual donations of items for emergency relief purposes. Items such as collections of food, used clothing, and shoes often must be cleaned, sorted, and repackaged which impedes the valuable resources of money, time, and personnel that are needed for other aspects of our relief operation.

The Red Cross, in partnership with other agencies, suggests that the best use for those types of donations is to support needy agencies within donors' local communities.

The Red Cross does work with corporate partners to accept non-household items, based on need. These donations are in very large quantities of uniform bulk donations, in proper packaging. If you believe your organization can offer appropriate in-kind support during a large-scale disaster, please contact your local Red Cross Chapter.
