Fund Raising for the American Red Cross

Any corporation, community group, school or individual can host an event or fundraising effort to benefit the American Red Cross of the Poconos, the National Disaster Relief Fund or International Response Fund.

The event or initiative is planned and executed by the corporation, community group, school or individual hosting the activity. The American Red Cross cannot provide volunteers, publicity or material support for a third-party event.

The group making the donation will receive a receipt. Please make sure that your donors and sponsors understand that anyone making a cash donation to the third-party fundraising event or initiative will not receive an individual receipt from the Red Cross as we will not be able to track who made each of the individual donations. Only donations made by check or cash donations made directly to a Red Cross office or employee/volunteer will receive a receipt.

The Red Cross greatly appreciates the generous spirit of the American public, but we must also consider all third-party proposals carefully to ensure they are in line with the programs, services and image of the American Red Cross. We understand that people have the best of intentions and want to make a difference. Therefore, we will review each proposal carefully, but there is no guarantee of approval.

Please contact Jim Rienhardt, Executive Director, at 570-476-3800 or jim.rienhardt@redcross.org in regard to your proposal. If the activity is approved, we will prepare a Third-Party Fundraising Agreement setting forth the terms and conditions of your relationship with our chapter with respect to the fundraising event or initiative.
