Second Century Campaign

The Second Century Campaign’s goal is to ensure your safety in a complex world. As we enter our Second Century of Service to the local community, we endeavor to raise $20 million by the year 2007.

Our vision is to prevent death by fire and drowning, to have every family make a plan and know what to do in an emergency, and to ensure that the people of Cleveland will be safer because the Red Cross is here.

The comprehensive campaign will generate:

  • $9.5 million in annual operating funds to provide expanded, critical disaster relief services, to educate and train more Clevelanders to prevent and prepare for emergencies, and to ensure we can respond to the varied and immediate emergency needs of citizens in Cuyahoga, Geauga and Lake counties;
  • $7.5 million in new endowments to provide increased stability for the Chapter to preserve vital services for future generations and to protect the Chapter from economic downturns;
  • $3 million for infrastructure upgrades including technology and communications, facility improvements including the expansion and state-of-the-art enhancements to our Emergency Operations Center and training classrooms and other critical capital needs essential to our business of keeping people safe.
Pledge your support today and receive a $1:$1 match for your endowment gifts from The 1525 Foundation. Contact Kimberly Gardner, Director of Financial Development, at 216.431.3215 or for match details and other ways you can leave your Red Cross legacy and save lives in Cuyahoga, Geauga and Lake counties.
