Ways to Give

Our healthcare systems rely heavily on communities to generously donate blood. However, there are many reasons why a person cannot or will not donate his or her blood. Blood Science Foundation offers these individuals and other community benefactors an alternative way of supporting this critical healthcare need. Your financial donation directly impacts the lives of patients in need of blood.

Online Donations

The easiest and fastest way to donate is through our online portal. You can choose where you’d like to apply your donation from scholarship funds to general operations. This way you’ll know exactly where your money is going and the positive impact your generosity is making.

Wills, Trusts & Life Insurance

Bequests are donations given through a living trust or will. You can designate the Blood Science Foundation as your beneficiary in a will or estate for a specific amount or designate the Foundation as your beneficiary in a life insurance policy. The Blood Science Foundation recommends consulting an attorney before drafting a will.

The Blood Science Foundation must be named as the owner and beneficiary of the insurance policy for it to be tax-deductible.
