Your gifts at work
How will my donation help?
Financial gifts support our work in five key areas: blood, plasma, stem cells, organs and tissues and research and innovation
"Financial donors and blood donors gave me more time with my husband. Now, it’s my turn to give back.”
– Becky Littau, financial donor
Do you run door-to-door fundraising or door knocking campaigns?
Canadian Blood Services does not ask for financial support from the public through door-to-door, street fundraising or telemarketing solicitations.
If you would like to notify us of suspected fraudulent fundraising activities in your community, please contact email@example.com or call us toll-free at 1-888-2-DONATE.
Why does Canadian Blood Services need to fundraise?
Financial gifts help save lives. Canadian Blood Services receives operational funding from the provincial and territorial ministries of health (except Quebec). Charitable donations supplement this funding and help us provide better outcomes for Canadian patients.
Where do I send my financial donation, or how can I contact you?
Donations can be made online, by mail (1800 Alta Vista Drive, Ottawa, ON, K1G 4J5) or by contacting 1 888 2 DONATE and asking for the Philanthropy Department.
Individuals interested in starting a crowd-funding campaign can do so as well.
What is your policy on administrative costs?
Canadian Blood Services will direct no more than 20% of financial donations to cover administrative costs.

Our official legal name is Canadian Blood Services and our charitable registration number is 87015 7641 RR0001.
