Additional Ways to Help Save Lives with Vitalant

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.

Donate Funds

Vitalant Foundation, the fundraising arm of Vitalant, helps to secure the financial resources needed to achieve our lifesaving mission. Your monetary donations, gifts in kind, sponsorships, tribute gifts and more can help support patients directly, and also support blood science and healthcare research. This research leads to innovations benefitting blood recipients and donors.
