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.
You can donate online, designate your gift, and even donate in Honor or Memory of someone important to you.

One of the best ways to help disaster victims and people in need in our community is through a financial donation. The Red Cross responds to the emerging needs of our community by offering programs and services that address critical human, health and safety needs. Among other things, we provide food and shelter to victims of disasters and teach people how to save lives through CPR, First Aid and water safety.
The American Red Cross needs your help. We are an independent, nonprofit organization that relies on the generosity of the American people. All Red Cross disaster assistance is free, thanks to the generosity of people like you. Contributions are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.
