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.
By making a charitable donation to the Red Cross, you are there for millions of people who face emergencies every year..

Donate Your Vehicle
Your vehicle donation enables the Red Cross to prevent and alleviate human suffering in the face of emergencies.
The American Red Cross does not accept or solicit small quantities of individual donations of items for emergency relief purposes. Items such as collections of food, used clothing, and shoes often must be cleaned, sorted, and repackaged which impedes the valuable resources of money, time, and personnel that are needed for other aspects of our relief operation.
The Red Cross, in partnership with other agencies, suggests that the best use for those types of donations is to support needy agencies within donors' local communities.
The Red Cross does work with corporate partners to accept non-household items, based on need. These donations are in very large quantities of uniform bulk donations, in proper packaging. If you believe your organization can offer appropriate in-kind support during a large-scale disaster, please contact your local Red Cross Chapter.
