With 95 percent of the organization’s disaster relief workers serving as volunteers, the organization relies on the support of donors to carry out its work.
For every dollar donated, $0.91 goes directly toward humanitarian efforts. Donations have helped the American Red Cross provide vital assistance following disasters such as Superstorm Sandy in 2012, the 7.8-magnitude Nepal earthquake in 2015, the 7.0-magnitude Haiti earthquake in 2010, the Erskine Fire in California in 2016, and Hurricane Matthew in 2016.

An entrepreneur, Hilt Tatum IV leads several Panama-based businesses. Hilt Tatum IV is the chairman of Oxford Consulting Group and cofounder of Project Joy Panama, a charitable organization launched in 2007 to offer services and support to families living in rural Panama.
Project Joy Panama’s primary goals are to promote and aid Panamanian children’s education and future employment prospects. To accomplish these goals, the organization awards education scholarships to children, assists families with the purchase of school supplies, and funds community projects and schools.
Each year during Christmastime, Project Joy Panama, with the help of its volunteer elves, organizes a fundraiser for the families it serves. Each family receives enough food for a Christmas dinner as well as presents for each child. Every year, dozens of deserving families benefit from this event.
In the long-term, Project Joy Panama seeks to both empower and enable children to graduate high school, attend college, and even start their own businesses.
