Donate Now

As a non-profit organization, not a government agency, the Red Cross depends on the generosity of the community to help us carry out our mission of helping individuals and families prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies. A financial contribution is the most helpful and efficient support we can receive from our donors. Every donation helps us improve our services to the community by assuring strong volunteer programs, an exceptional and talented employee base, and programs for the community that meet basic human needs.

If you have any questions about donation opportunities, please contact our development department at 503-528-5634. Thank you for your support of the American Red Cross!

Make an Honor or Memorial Gift

An American Red Cross honor gift allows you to recognize special milestones in your loved ones' lives or acknowledge someone who has made a difference in your own life.

A memorial gift expresses the sense of loss when someone important to you passes away. It is also a meaningful way to celebrate the memory of a loved one who cared about the American Red Cross mission.

To make an honor or memorial gift, please call 503-528-5634. Red Cross will send a personalized tribute card to the honored or memorialized person or family, notifying them of your thoughtful donation.

Make a Matching Gift

Contact your human resources department to find out if your workplace has a matching gift program, or visit www.matchinggifts.com/redcross. This can make your donation go twice as far, and assist twice as many programs and services offered by your local American Red Cross.

Donate Your Vehicle

Donating your vehicle—in any condition—is a great way to help us help others. We accept vehicles in all 50 states, from cars and trucks to boats and motorcycles. Learn more about the Red Cross Vehicle Donation Program.

In-Kind Donations

The American Red Cross cannot accept items such as food, clothing, furniture, etc. In Oregon, and in Clark and Skamania counties in Southwest Washington, you can call 211 to locate a non-profit organization that could benefit from your in-kind donation. Or, hold a garage/rummage sale with the items and donate the proceeds to the Red Cross.
