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.

Make a personal gift

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.

Honour a loved one

Honour the memory of someone special with a gift that gives life. You can send an e-card with your online gift, or we can notify the family with a sympathy card. The amount of your donation is kept strictly confidential and giving is made easy using our online donation form.

Donate to celebrate

When Jack turned 90 he asked his friends and family to make a financial donation to Canadian Blood Services instead of buying gifts for him. If you or someone you love has a milestone birthday, anniversary or special event coming up, celebrate with a financial gift made online or start a fundraiser.

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!

Leave a legacy

By planning a gift, you can make a significant future donation without investing large sums of money. You will also recognize significant tax savings. There are many ways to make a planned gift: through your will, RRSPs and RRIFs, or life insurance policy. A member of our philanthropy team will be happy to offer guidance. You should also talk to your financial advisor and let them know your wishes.
