Every year many people just like you designate the American Red Cross Bay Area to receive a gift as part of their estate plan. This extraordinary act of thoughtfulness ensures that the Red Cross is able to help your friends and neighbors when there is a fire, flood, earthquake or other disaster.

To recognize your achievement in philanthropy, the American Red Cross Bay Area created the Legacy Society. Members of the Society are honored for their foresight, generosity and commitment to the American Red Cross in our second century of service to the Bay Area.

Benefits of Legacy Society membership include:

  • Subscription to our periodic financial planning newsletter Foresight
  • Being named in our annual report as a significant benefactor (unless you request anonymity)
  • 20% discount on all RedCrossShop.org products and courses
  • Invitations to special events honoring Society members and other Red Cross benefactors

We invite you to join the Legacy Society by notifying us that you have included the American Red Cross Bay Area Chapter in your estate plan. Click here for a list of our current Legacy Society members [PDF, 53K], then read some of their Red Cross stories. [PDF, 2MB]
