About Financial Contributions
Volunteer blood donors are the heart of Commit for Life, and The Blood Center is deeply grateful for their life-saving gifts. A single blood donation can save as many as three lives. However, we realize that not everyone is able to give blood, and we are all limited by the number of times we can donate.
Recognizing the enormous potential for generosity in our community, The Blood Center offers everyone an opportunity to save lives by making a financial contribution. Your gift will make possible the resources needed to save lives. Specifically, contributions will support:
- New laboratory equipment;
- Renovation and expansion of blood testing laboratories;
- Neighborhood Donor Centers; and
- Public awareness programs.
All of these items play a vital role in collecting, testing and distributing the life-saving gift that benefits thousands of patients each year.
