Host a Fundraiser

You can host an event on your own, with your school or group to fundraise on behalf of Direct Relief. We make it easy by giving you guidelines and ideas and also by allowing you to create your own fundraising page that you can solicit donations for.

Volunteer or Join A Group

Direct Relief relies on volunteers to fulfill our mission, especially at our Santa Barbara, California headquarters and warehouse. Our official volunteer groups are Direct Relief Women and Youth4DirectRelief. These groups generate awareness of Direct Relief’s work and fundraise in support of our programs through a variety of events, outreach and educational efforts.

Mail a Check

We gladly accept checks sent to our headquarters at 27 S. La Patera Lane, Santa Barbara, CA 93117, USA. Please make checks payable to Direct Relief. We will mail you back a letter, which will include your donation information for your tax records.

Donate Assets

A gift of stock or other securities can make a world of difference in our ability to deliver medical aid. Since many securities have appreciated in value since their purchase, they make an attractive gift under current tax laws.

Donate Vehicles

If you have a car, truck, RV or boat you would like to donate, you can do so via V-Dac.com. V-Dac accepts any vehicle, anywhere in the United States, running or not.
