Become a Partner of the American Red Cross and Enjoy the Benefits of Giving.
Virtually everything we do depends on the successful relationships the Red Cross has with organizations and individuals outside of the Red Cross. Whether it is our funding partners, local businesses, volunteer base, first responders, or other nonprofits - the partners we work with everyday help us identify and meet the needs of our community.
The American Red Cross is not a government agency. Our programs rely on financial support and voluntary service from generous citizens in Iowa.
Every day, the American Red Cross assists people who face emergencies. We secure food and lodging for the family stuck by a home fire. We help a deployed soldier get home for the birth of his son. We provide blood to the child battling cancer. Click Here to learn more.
Financial contributions support the work of our lifesaving programs and services. The Red Cross is not a government agency and our strength in the community depends on the generosity of our donors. Consider making a multi-year pledge of support to enable us to be more strategic as we plan for the future.

Connect your organization's values with your employee's desires by hosting a volunteer orientation.
