The American Red Cross Of Augusta needs your help. The Red Cross receives no government funding. We are an independent, non-profit organization that relies on the generosity of the American people. Our chapter serves the people of Richmond, Columbia, Burke, Glascock, Jefferson, Jenkins, Lincoln, McDuffie, Taliaffero, Warren and Wilkes counties. Your financial support helps the Augusta Red Cross :

· Provide relief to disaster victims anytime, anywhere;

· Teach the community how to prepare for and respond to emergencies;

· Reach youth and adults with the knowledge and skills to save lives;

· Help young people develop their leadership skills through special programs; and

· Provide emergency communications and support to members of the armed forces and their families.


Please contact our Financial Development Department at (706) 724-8481 about details on all of the following giving opportunities.

Donate by Phone or Mail

Make a credit card contribution by phone or have a representative send you a printed donation return envelope. We encourage you to think about joining our Clara Barton Society. Please make your checks payable to the American Red Cross of Augusta and mail it to 1322 Ellis Street, Augusta, GA. 30901.

  • Gifts of Stock

If you own stocks and bonds that have increased in value, it may be more advantageous to donate these securities to the American Red Cross of Augusta, rather than sell them and donate the proceeds from the sale. By donating the securities directly, you may co9mpletely avoid the Capital Gains tax while receiving a tax deduction on the securities’ increased value. The Red Cross can transact your gift of securities quickly and inexpensively, so your donation will have the greatest possible impact.

  • Corporate Matching Gifts

Many companies match employees’ contributions to charity. Please check with your Human Resources Department to find out if your company has such a program. If your company does match employee contributions, please include the appropriate Matching Gift Form with your donation (your donation will help twice as much).

  • Corporate Sponsorships or Contributions/Gifts and Services

One of the best ways for your company to help is through a financial event sponsorship or donation to the American Red Cross of Augusta. Your company’s financial support allows us to continue responding to community needs while stimulating the local economy. In some instances, the chapter also accepts corporate donations of goods and services such as office equipment, supplies and various other in-kind items. These donations are used to support chapter operations or special events.

  • Charitable Gift Annuities

A charitable gift annuity is a way to help those in need while enjoying significant tax benefits and supplementing your income. This program has been created for our friends who want sufficient income for retirement years, yet want to continue to give to the Red Cross. In exchange, you receive guaranteed fixed amounts annually throughout your lifetime. You may want to defer payment until later in life through a deferred charitable gift annuity which offers a very attractive rate of return

  • Bequests/Remembering the Augusta Red Cross in Your Will

Many friends who contribute to the Red Cross arrange to perpetuate their giving through their wills. Remembering the Red Cross in your will is a special way to ensure that our work will continue for a long time to come. Such gifts may include a bequest of csh, securities or property in a specific sum or by percentage; real estate, or a charitable remainder trust.

  • Memorials and Honorariums

A memorial gift to the Augusta Red Cross is a special tribute to life of a treasured friend or loved one. A donation to the to the Red Cross is the perfect way to recognize a person or special event in your life. Birthdays, holidays, weddings, anniversaries and job promotions are excellent occasions for an honorarium gift to the Red Cross.
