Participating in the American Red Cross Annual Disaster Giving Program (ADGP) is a crucial part of our disaster funding strategy. We commit our grant dollars before disasters happen ensuring the Red Cross can prepare communities for emergencies and respond immediately.
“Millions of people across the country were impacted by an unrelenting wave of devastating disasters—compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Gail McGovern, president and CEO of the American Red Cross. “Thanks to the forward-thinking contribution of Truist Foundation through our Annual Disaster Giving Program (ADGP), we were able to mobilize immediately to provide emergency lodging, warm meals, basic supplies and recovery support to disaster survivors in their darkest hours. We truly appreciate this meaningful commitment to our humanitarian mission.”
We also support the annual Sound the Alarm campaign to help people prepare for home fires. And, we share Red Cross resources with our teammates for events such as hurricane preparedness. See the Red Cross website for more information on emergency preparedness.
Our relief effort work is rooted in being strategic, thoughtful, and aligning with community partners to maximize our impact.
Our partnerships with nonprofits help provide these essentials to people when disasters strike:
