The American Red Cross Bay Area is an independent, non-profit organization that relies on the generosity of the American people for its financial support. The Red Cross is not a government agency; voluntary contributions are the key to our ability to respond when help can't wait.

The percentage of income Red Cross spends on direct services consistently ranks it among the nation's most well-managed non-profit organizations. In 1996 Money Magazine named the Red Cross the No. 1 charity in the country. Please email us if you have any questions.
