Host a blood drive
Donating blood at Vitalant is one important way to join our lifesaving team, but we offer other opportunities to make a difference and help save the lives of patients in communities across the U.S. It takes scores of volunteers, financial donors, blood donation ambassadors and blood drive coordinators in addition to blood donors to ensure hospital patients have the blood they need, when they need it.
Vitalant Foundation, the fundraising arm of Vitalant, helps to secure the financial
resources needed to achieve our lifesaving mission. Your monetary donations, gifts
kind, sponsorships, tribute gifts and more can help support patients directly, and
support blood science and healthcare research. This research leads to innovations
benefitting blood recipients and donors.
Volunteers provide the extra assistance needed to run blood drives and, in some areas
the country, are needed to support other aspects of Vitalant’s mission. If you’d
donate your time or expertise, check to see what volunteer opportunities are
in your area. Volunteer opportunities vary by region.
Did blood donations save your life or that of a loved one? Or maybe you’ve been a
longtime blood donor or blood drive host and want to share what inspires you to keep
coming back. Your story could be just the motivation someone needs to donate blood.
