Financial gifts save lives too

Did you know? Canadian Blood Services is a registered charity that accepts financial donations. When you make a gift, you are joining the community of financial, blood, stem cell and organ and tissue donors who are at the heart of all we do. Your financial donation will help patients by strengthening lifesaving programs and initiatives in four focus areas:

Blood

Each year, 100,000 new blood donors are needed to meet demand. Donations to the blood focus area fund programs that help retain blood donors by providing them with an improved donor experience. Clinic enhancement may include improved collection technology to maximize the gift of each donor, or modernizing clinics to make donating a more pleasant experience.

Organs and Tissues

Just one organ donor can save up to eight lives and tissue and eye donors can improve the lives of up to 75 more. Donations in support of this focus area fund programs and initiatives that educate and raise awareness around the need for more lifesaving organ and tissue donors.

Research and Innovation

Canadian Blood Services drives world-class innovation in blood transfusion, cellular therapy and transplantation research. Donations in support of this focus area fund research projects that help us continue to be a global leader in this healthcare environment, addressing emerging issues and framing best practices.

Stem Cells

There are hundreds of patients in Canada waiting for a match but only 1 in 2 find a match. Donations made in support of this focus area help increase registrants to the adult stem cell registry and continue to build Canadian Blood Services' Cord Blood Bank through the education and recruitment of new moms.
