The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.
The American Red Cross exists to provide compassionate care to those in need.
A gift plan can provide you substantial tax advantages, especially on gifts of stocks and real estate. The total income, estate, and capital gains tax savings and the probate expense savings can come close to the amount transferred. A planned gift today can save you headaches tomorrow.
A legacy of compassion links the earliest Red Cross visionaries — Henry Dunant, father of the global Red Cross movement, and Clara Barton, founder of the American Red Cross—with millions of Red Cross supporters who carry on the work of one of the nation’s most respected humanitarian organizations.
Both our donors and the beneficiaries of their generosity have stories to share. Read their stories.
