American Red Cross

As one of the nation’s premier humanitarian organizations, the American Red Cross is dedicated to helping people in need throughout the United States and, in association with other Red Cross networks, throughout the world. We depend on the many generous contributions of time, blood, and money from the American public to support our lifesaving services and programs.

The history of the American Red Cross is inseparable from the history of America itself. Since 1881, American Red Cross members and volunteers have been an essential part of our nation’s response to war, natural disaster and other human suffering. We’ve been witness to great tragedy, but more importantly we’ve seen the triumph of the human spirit as people work together to help each other rebuild their lives and communities.


Over more than 100 years of service our commitment to the troops, their families and our veterans has never wavered. Whether serving as the military’s Nursing Reserve through both world wars, or providing service in the local community, Red Cross volunteer nurses set the standard for professional, compassionate care.

The humanitarian mission of the American Red Cross connects us to people and communities across the nation and around the world. The common bonds of humanity and compassion unite us together, not just in the face of emergencies and disasters, but in helping our neighbors every day.

Since being founded by Clara Barton in 1881, the Red Cross has been a consistent lifeline for people when they need us the most. The depth and breadth of our services – whenever and wherever they're called for – is unmatched by any organization in the world.

* Disaster Relief
We provide care, compassion and emergency needs when disaster strikes.

* Support for Military Families
We support members of the military, veterans and their families in coping, connecting and obtaining financial assistance.

* Health and Safety Training & Education
We train individuals, families and organizations with lifesaving skills and emergency and disaster preparedness information.

* Lifesaving Blood
We collect and distribute more than 40 percent of America’s blood supply.

* International Services
We are a global leader in responding to emergencies, preparing for disasters, preventing disease and promoting humanitarian values.

These extraordinary efforts are made possible by people like you who roll up their sleeves and open their hearts to help their neighbors – by donating time, money and blood, or by taking a course to learn CPR, First Aid or other essential skills. Supported by our headquarters in Washington, D.C. and more than a thousand locations in communities across the country, our volunteers and contributors make a difference in millions of lives each year.
