“As we were leaving the hospital, I was handed an envelope full of small tickets with a barcode on them, each representing one of the 27 blood products Elias was given during his stay. Words simply cannot express our thanks to the strangers like you who helped make those donations possible.” – Cecile, Elias’s mom.
When you give financially, you help to reach more people who can donate blood products that save lives like Elias’s. He survived both open heart and brain surgery because of donors like you.
Patients like Charles need donors more than ever to give lifesaving blood products — even during a global pandemic.
Charles has received more than 100 blood transfusions to help treat his genetic condition. Throughout his life, he will require hundreds more. During these uncertain times, new and returning donors are critical to meeting Canada’s needs now and in the future.
Your gift today can help strengthen our national blood system — from donor recruitment to research — and ensure life essentials are there when lives depend on them. Because they do.
When patients are in need, there’s more than one way to show up and make a difference. Financial donations to Canada’s Lifeline are an important way to answer the call.
Donate each month or make a one-time gift to celebrate a special occasion or honour a loved one. You can even explore leaving a gift in your will, or inspiring and engaging your staff through corporate giving.
No matter how you choose to give, every dollar will make a difference in our efforts to improve outcomes for patients who depend on us.

Throughout the year, our generous financial donors give selflessly, to help make a difference in the lives of Canadian patients. Their gifts help to drive world-class innovation in blood transfusion and transplantation research, recruit ethnically diverse donors to the national stem cell registry, and inspire the next generation of blood donors to join Canada’s Lifeline.
