How to give

No matter how you choose to give, every dollar of your gift will help us provide lifesaving products and services for Canadian patients. As a financial donor, you’ll help us realize our vision to help every patient, match every need and serve every Canadian.

You’ll feel good knowing that just like blood, plasma or stem cells, your financial donation helps save lives. You can make a one-time gift or help us meet the increasing needs of tomorrow by donating monthly

Amplify your impact​

Already hosting a blood donation or swabbing event in support of Canadian Blood Services?

Build a corporate culture of giving

Inquire about sponsorship opportunities, donate a speaker’s honorarium or double an employee’s financial gift, volunteerism or blood donation through corporate matching. It’s easy to recognize your corporate social responsibility goals when you team up with employees to support their charity of choice!
