Give a significant gift to the British Red Cross and help change the lives of people in crisis.

Why give to the British Red Cross?

Support from individual philanthropists and charitable trusts is vital to our work. It's because of significant donations that we're able to help people in crisis right now and be ready for the next emergency.

Giving a donation of £5,000 or more can create lasting change for people in crisis. It will transform lives.
