Commit for Life as a Donor

Commit for Life is a partnership between you and Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center that is focused on saving lives, today... and in the future.

In 2015, the Commit for Life program has evolved to focus on rewarding donors for giving the most-needed components - what we call an "optimum donation," which our staff will recommend to each donor at the time of their donation.

These are the three steps for a donor to Commit for Life.

How do I Commit for Life?

Know how your type matters.

You're the type of person who understands the value of helping others. Every day, patients depend on  donors like you to provide many types of blood donations that help in different ways. No matter what your blood type is, your type matters.

Donate what matters today.

Patient needs change daily and certain blood components may be more in-demand from each donor. Our staff will let you know how you can make the most of your donation by giving what’s needed today - your optimum donation.

Commit to your next donation.

The need for blood donations is ongoing. You can ensure a steady blood supply is available for ever-changing patient needs by giving again as soon as you’re eligible. Each time you donate, be sure to plan your next donation.
