Volunteer blood donors are the heart of Coffee Memorial Blood Center, and we are deeply grateful for their life-saving gifts. A single blood donation can save as many as three lives. However, we realize that not everyone is able to give blood, and we are all limited by the number of times we can donate.
Coffee Memorial Blood Center is dedicated to continuous improvement in blood banking, displaying that commitment by examining best practices in applied research, innovative educational methods and outstanding clinical practice. By engaging in these pursuits, we provide important and significant contributions to the body of medical and scientific knowledge, as well as to the understanding and practice of transfusion medicine.
Financial contributions are used to support two primary areas to enhance our services. Both of these play a vital role in collecting, testing and distributing the life-saving gift that benefits thousands of patients each year:
Support of blood center operations to serve its 31-county service area.
As the only blood center for the area, it is crucial that CMBC maintains a stable operation.
Education and Public awareness programs
The need for blood is constant, as is the diligence that is required to educate current and future blood donors about the importance of blood donation. Through use of promotional materials, displays and other means, a positive message is conveyed that donated blood saves patient lives.
General Support - Unrestricted gifts go toward the cost of operating your community blood center.
Special Programs – Restrict your gift to a particular program or service. There are a variety of naming opportunities within the blood center. We will work with you to appropriately recognize your generosity.
