Online Fundraising for the American Red Cross - Powered by Crowdrise

What is Crowdrise?

Whether you're donating blood, running in a marathon, donating your birthday for charity, doing a tribute or anything else, Crowdrise enables you to create a personal fundraising page to track donations, update content and ask your friends and family to support your favorite charity.

How does this support our mission and help save lives?
The Crowdrise tool provides a fun and easy way to raise money in support of the American Red Cross. You can help people affected by disasters like tornadoes, floods and other crises by fundraising or making a donation to American Red Cross Disaster Relief. Your gift enables the Red Cross to prepare for and provide shelter, food, emotional support and other assistance in response to disasters. Your financial support can also help the Red Cross continue to provide lifesaving blood and blood products to those in need.
