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 the 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 Disaster Responder Program members or Annual Disaster Giving Program (ADGP) based on their giving level, and receive significant access to Nationwide Red Cross benefits, information and decision-makers.
Every day, the Red Cross assists people who face emergencies. From securing food and lodging for the family impacted by a home fire, by helping a deployed soldier get home for the birth of his son and by providing blood to the child battling cancer, 365 days a year- the Red Cross and its Ready 365 Members are actively assisting communities across Minnesota and the Dakotas. You can be a part of this important mission and stand with the Red Cross as we provide lifesaving services.
Ready 365 has multiple giving levels and each level provides visible recognition through high-traffic communication channels and spotlights your organization as a dedicated Red Cross partner.
Ready 365 members understand the importance of supporting the Red Cross 365 days a year and have a strong desire to help our community. We thank our partners for their ongoing support and commitment to our mission.
