Ways to Donate

It is the mission of the American Red Cross to be there when people need help most - whether a disaster strikes thousands of people at once or one family in the middle of the night, the Red Cross is there. We help families stay healthy and keep safe.

Whether through disaster response, emergency preparedness, First Aid, CPR, messaging between members of the Armed Forces and their families or collecting lifesaving blood, the Red Cross is there.

Your contribution means that we can continue to provide these vital services and help save lives. The Red Cross honors donor preference. You can designate your gift for the local Bay Area Chapter or national and international relief efforts. Your gift today, will provide hope and relief tomorrow.
