When you give to the American Red Cross, you help our community's most vulnerable and most needy. An average of 90 cents of every dollar the Red Cross spends is invested in delivering care and comfort to those in need. Donations are used to provide food shelter, emotional support and other assistance, as well as the vehicles, warehouses and people that make relief possible. All of our expenses are fully transparent and can be reviewed here.
Become part of the largest humanitarian network in the world—one that reaches into your home community and around the world by making a philanthropic donation. Consider becoming a Ready 365 partner to help make sure the American Red Cross is ready to serve the community 365 days a year. You might also consider sharing a portion of the proceeds from the sale of your products, services or event tickets.

When you donate, you can help as many as three people. When you host, you can help hundreds of people.
The Red Cross hosts special events to help raise critical funds for our many lines of service. Whatever your preference, sponsoring an event hosted by the American Red Cross is a great way to make an unrestricted gift to the Red Cross, make your company a visible partner, and enjoy a top-notch experience for you and your guests.
Gift plans create opportunities for donors and the American Red Cross. Determining what gift is right for you is just as important as making the gift. There are many options from which you can choose. The correct plan balances what you wish to accomplish for yourself, your family, and your charitable interests as part of your overall estate and financial plans.
