Why should I give financially?
Financial gifts save lives too. Your donations will help patients by strengthening lifesaving programs and initiatives.
Our four focus areas are:
- Stem Cells
- Organs and Tissues
- Research and Innovation
The donors across the country who Give Life with blood donations are truly at the heart of the blood system. Financial donations to Canadian Blood Services help us go above and beyond to make the donation process as comfortable and smooth as possible.
Your donation could help recruit the approximately 100,000 new donors needed each year to meet demand. Or, you could help fund projects that modernize our clinics and provide a better donor experience.
Thousands of Canadians are in need of organ, tissue and eye donations. Hundreds die each year waiting for vital transplants.
When you make a financial gift to this focus area, you could help fund programs that educate and raise awareness for the need for organ and tissue donations. Just one organ donor can save up to eight lives and tissue and eye and tissue donors can improve the lives of up to 75 more!
Over 80 diseases and disorders can be treated with a stem cell transplant. There are hundreds of patients in Canada waiting for a match, but only 1 in 2 find a match. A financial gift helps build the cord blood bank through the education and recruitment of new moms.
You could also help fund events like Big Swab University to recruit stem cell registrants, or support the Partners for Life program where corporations and community organizations encourage their employees to give blood and stem cells.
Canadian Blood Services drives world-class innovation in blood transfusion, cellular therapy and transplantation research. Your financial contribution will support programs such as the Cord Blood for Research program, a brand-new program that promotes research that may one day help leukemia, lymphoma and aplastic anemia patients.
