Steps for Donating

  1. We check that you are who you say you are. We’ll verify you are who you say you are with your ID.
  2. We make sure you’re healthy. A finger stick is performed to make sure your blood iron level is at a healthy level to donate. We’ll ask you some questions during a short medical interview to make sure you fall within legal blood-donation guidelines. These questions include medical history, and verify that your donation will not place you or others at risk.
  3. You give us your autograph. You will be asked to read and sign a consent form.
  4. Donate. We’ll take approximately one pint of blood and required samples. The entire procedure takes about one hour.
  5. Get paid. Yep, we pay you in cash! You’ll also receive a return card, which generally will have a date eight weeks later. (Note if you return on the assigned date, we’ll pay you a bonus! After five on-time visits, we pay additional bonuses.)

Donor FAQ's

Who benefits from my donation?

You’ll get cash for your donation, and the extracted blood components that you give help patients around the world. You donation is used in research, diagnostics and further manufacturing into controls used in labs for essential everyday tests.

 

What do I get out of it?

Cash!  We pay cash for your blood.  The minimum donor payment you can expect is $20, however we often have “extras” you can choose to participate in to receive an additional cash bonus.  We also pay bonuses to donors who return on their due dates.  If you return on your due date 5 times in a row, you will receive an additional bonus for that too! Our staff will help guide you through the bonus programs that we have.

 

What are the risks?

There are minimal risks involved in donating a unit of blood.  We recommend that you have a light meal before donating, avoiding fatty foods.  Fasting is the most common cause of faintness or other physical reactions while donating.  Occasionally, swelling or discoloration of the needle insertion area occurs.  This risk can be minimized by taking care not to move during the donation, which takes only about 10-15 minutes.  If swelling does occur, applying a cold pack or ice to the area may provide relief.  Other donor reactions are rare.  Our personnel are trained in the proper handling of such occurrences.

How long does it take?

We know your time is precious.  Our goal it to get you in and out as quickly as we can.  Donors are processed on a first come, first serve basis.  From the time you come in the door to the time you are ready to leave should be about an hour.

 

 

 

What is source plasma donation and am I eligible?

Source plasma donation is a different method in which only one component of the blood is taken, and the donor is left with all of their red blood cells. Our source plasma program is very selective and we’ll let you know if you are qualified. We require whole blood donations prior to beginning the source plasma program.
