The best way to help victims of tragedy in our community is through monetary donations to the American Red Cross. Individuals and companies can raise money to support the Red Cross by hosting fundraisers and donating the proceeds. Your event can be large or small in scale, whatever you have the time and energy to do.

1
Decide on a fundraising idea or event you want to host: Be it a bake sale, charity car wash or ‘Wear Jeans to Work’ day, there are lots of fun and easy ways to raise money for the Red Cross. The sky is the limit!

2
Get Red Cross approval for your event: Call Jeffrey Putnam at 706-291-6648 or email jeffrey.putnam@redcross.org with the details of your event.

3
Sign the Agreement and Get Started! – A Red Cross staff member will help finalize the details of your event and provide a Third Party Fundraising Agreement for you to sign. This is a legal document that protects you and the Red Cross. Then it’s time to host your event - be it a bake sale or a sit down dinner for your closest friends - and collect donations.
