How to give

There are
many ways
to give.

Make a personal gift

The easiest way to support Canadian Blood Services financially is with a personal gift made online or by mailing a cheque. You can make a one-time gift, or help us build a solid foundation by joining our Cornerstone monthly financial giving program. Monthly gifts are the most effective way to provide steady, ongoing funds that support Canadian patients who require ongoing care. 

Celebrate an event

When Jack turned 90 his friends and family asked him how they could help celebrate his milestone birthday. He told them that in lieu of gifts, they could make a financial donation to Canadian Blood Services – an organization he has supported for over three decades. If you or someone you love has a milestone birthday, anniversary or event coming up, celebrate with a financial gift made online or start a DIY campaign

Honour a loved one

Honour the life of a special person with a tribute gift made in their name. Canadian Blood Services will deliver an e-card or mail a sympathy card to the bereaved family, acknowledging your thoughtful gesture. You will receive a tax receipt and a note of thanks for your generosity. The amount of your donation is kept strictly confidential and donating is made easy using our online donation form.  

Create a DIY fundraising page

There are so many creative ways to fundraise on behalf of Canadian Blood Services and we love seeing your innovative fundraising campaigns. Are you running in a local 10K? Are you organizing a fun event like a bake sale, or paint night? Want to support us through your family’s annual barbecue? Set up a fundraising page and make it easy for your friends and family to join your efforts.

Make a corporate gift

Recognize your employee’s volunteerism, donate a speaker’s honorarium or double an employee’s contribution through your corporate matching policy. Achieving your corporate social responsibility goals is easy when you team up with your employees – or inquire about sponsorship opportunities that can provide both organizations with a win-win! 

Planned Giving

Join the Legacy for Life Society with a planned gift to Canadian Blood Services. 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 fundraising team will be happy to offer guidance and answer any questions you may have regarding planned giving.
