Each year, the American Red Cross immediately responds to nearly 66,000 disasters around the country— from home fires to tornadoes and severe winter weather, hurricanes and floods to transportation accidents and explosions. The Red Cross not only provides food, shelter and clothing, but also offers comfort and care to help those affected by disaster during their time of greatest need. Members of our Annual Disaster Giving Program (ADGP) and Disaster Responder Program pre-invest in disaster relief, ensuring the Red Cross can pre-position supplies, secure shelters, maintain vehicles and train volunteers nationwide, so we’re always ready to respond, day and night. This support also means we can remain on hand to assist people as they recover and help become better prepared for the next disaster.
Donors that commit $250,000 or more annually to Red Cross Disaster Relief are recognized as Annual Disaster Giving Program (ADGP) or Disaster Responder Program members, based on their giving level, and receive significant access to Nationwide Red Cross benefits, information and decision-makers.
