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.
