A hot meal delivered to victims after a disaster, blood when it is needed most, shelter when there is nowhere else to turn, an emergency message delivered to a member of the Armed Forces from their family – these are just some of the ways that gifts are put to work through the American Red Cross. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the American Red Cross is empowering people to perform extraordinary acts in the face of emergencies.

Although mandated by congress to provide vital relief to victims of disaster, the Red Cross is not a government agency and receives no government funding. We rely only on the generosity of our donors. Donors may specify their gifts for local disaster relief, national disaster relief, international disaster relief or Services to the Armed Forces.
