About Red Cross Since its founding in 1881 by visionary leader Clara Barton, the Red Cross has been the nation's premier emergency response organization. The Red Cross is not a government agency; it relies on donations of time, money and blood to do its work. An average of 91 cents of every dollar the Red Cross spends is invested in humanitarian services and programs. Today, the Red Cross provides approximately 40 percent of the nation’s blood supply, more than any other blood bank. As a national provider, the Red Cross has a unique responsibility to help ensure hospital patients throughout the U.S. have blood when they need it.
