Be Red Cross Ready (BRCR) is a program of the American Red Cross that provides volunteers from partner companies and community organizations to be immediately ready to help in the time of a local, large scale disaster.
Train Your Employees
Medical emergencies and accidents on the job cost American companies billion of dollars each year in lost wages, health care expenses, lawsuits and worker's compensation claims. Reduce these costs by teaching your employees how to prevent workplace emergencies and how to properly respond to them when they do occur.
Preparedness Fund

The Preparedness Fund was created by longtime supporters of the American Red Cross Dayton Area Chapter to help provide for its long-range financial stability. The effort is aptly named as preparedness along with disaster prevention and response, describes our core mission. The Dayton Area Chapter has an obligation to provide these services into the future; collaboration with the renowned Dayton Foundation allows contributors to participate in meaningful ways.

Through the Preparedness Fund contributors pledge to ensure that the Dayton Area Chapter is financially prepared to provide: disaster preparedness and response; emergency communications for military families; health and safety training; and emergency housing for homeless families for future generations. You may also find that tax advantages can increase the value of your estate or create new income streams, enabling you to do more than you might have ever dreamed possible. Your gift can ensure that the mission of the Dayton Area Chapter will continue for your children and their community.

A planned, charitable gift may be made in a variety of ways including: Outright Gifts, Gift Annuities, Wills & Bequests, Insurance, Charitable Trusts and Retirement Funds. Each has a varied estate or income tax benefit that can result in a gift that is considerably larger than the after-tax costs to you.

The Dayton Area Chapter is ready to provide you and your advisors with more information.

In Kind

We are unable to accept small, individual donations or collections of items such as clothing, food, or cleaning supplies. While the Red Cross cannot accept the donation of an individual item, you can support the Red Cross through the online sale of personal items. You can also support your community by donating these items to St. Vincent.

Offers of sizeable, bulk donations are reviewed to determine if they meet a current need for disaster victims that can be addressed by the Red Cross. Bulk donations are typically new, shrink-wrapped and palletized items, and they are transported by the donor.
