Service to the Armed Forces Giving Program

  • The American Red Cross is reknowned for its support of military families.
Every day, men and women answer our nation’s call to serve in the United States Armed Forces. In doing so, they assume a great responsibility and face challenges unique to military life:
  • Multiple deployments
  • Separation from loved ones
  • Risk of injury

None of us can erase these difficulties, but we can ensure that military members, veterans and their families never face them alone. The American Red Cross is beside our heroes from the day they enlist, throughout their military careers and beyond. We provide critical services with a caring touch.

Our call to service began over 130 years ago with our founder, Clara Barton, on the Civil War battlefields. A Caravan ORC International poll conducted in 2011 found that one in five U.S. adults or their family members have benefited from Red Cross Service to the Armed Forces (SAF). When companies and foundations join the SAF Giving Program, they stand beside us in caring for and thanking military heroes and their families.

SAF Giving Program members are among the most valuable Red Cross partners. They receive the highest level of recognition in channels that reach military members and the general public.
