Save Lives & Support a Charity

Give Blood & Give Back (GB&GB) is a partnership opportunity that doubles the impact of every blood donation. Based on the success of the Save Lives, Feed Families program, the GB&GB initiative promises to make a significant impact across our service areas. At the same time, GB&GB is a response to build our diminishing blood supply.

For GB&GB, Blood Science Foundation (BSF) selects nonprofit organizations (charity beneficiaries) to host and promote GB&GB blood drives. These drives attract new blood donors while helping to generate monetary donations from BSF and its funding partners to the selected charity beneficiaries in honor of each registered blood donor.

That’s giving back & paying it forward!

Join us by becoming…

Give the gift of life through your blood donation

Unlock a monetary donation to one of our charity beneficiaries in your honor

Volunteer blood donors are urgently needed to treat patients in our hospitals and healthcare systems. Your gift of blood will help save up to three lives while also unlocking a monetary donation to help one of our charity beneficiaries meet the critical needs of individuals and families in our communities. When you donate blood at any GB&GB blood drive listed below, BSF will make a financial contribution in your honor to the charity beneficiary listed. Giving blood is giving back twice through GB&GB.

Schedule your appointment and double the impact of your blood donation.

To reserve your spot at any of the blood drives below, copy the group code number, click the purple “Schedule an appointment” button and paste the group code into the “Search by Group Code” box. Blood drives are listed in order of date.

ENGAGE YOUR STAKEHOLDERS IN A WORTHWHILE CAUSE

BUILD POSITIVE PUBLIC RELATIONS BY HOSTING A BLOOD DRIVE IN YOUR COMMUNITY

Volunteer blood donors are urgently needed to help patients in our hospitals and healthcare systems in our communities. By hosting a blood drive, you will build positive public relations while providing an essential location for blood donors to join you in saving lives and supporting charities. Vitalant must collect as many as 5,500 blood donations every day to meet patient needs. Take this opportunity to save lives and support two vital causes simultaneously. You can inspire others to act by hosting a GB&GB blood drive today.

On-site blood drives can be held almost anywhere, from churches and businesses to recreation centers, libraries, and clubhouses.

To host a blood drive for GB&GB, click the button below and fill out the form. In the Comments field, enter “GB&GB Blood Drive.” A member of the Vitalant staff will reach out to you to discuss your blood drive.

Here’s how it works

As the fundraising arm of Vitalant, BSF secures funding to partner with Vitalant and selected charities that address the critical and basic needs of our communities. Each blood donation can save up to three lives and triggers a monetary donation in the blood donor’s honor to a partnering charity beneficiary.
