Schools

A significant portion of blood needed by our communities is collected at school blood drives.

By donating blood and organizing blood drives at your high school or college, you are helping make sure blood is available when people need it.

We encourage students to become part of our family by volunteering their time or donating blood. To show our appreciation, we offer scholarships to local high school and college students who are involved in organizing blood drives at their schools.

By California law, parent consent forms are required for all 16- and 17-year-old students to donate blood. Your high school's administration decides whether or not parent consent forms are required for students older than 17. Please check with your school's administration regarding your school's policy.

High School Blood Drive Challenge

We are excited to share with you the BloodSource High School Blood Drive Challenge for the 2017-2018 school year that offers your participating high school the opportunity to reap big rewards!  Each high school that hosts a blood drive(s) in the 2017-2018 school year is automatically entered into the challenge. Schools are categorized into ‘tiers’ based on the population of the junior/senior class. The winning high schools in each tier will be determined based on the highest percent of participation at your blood drive(s). Students, faculty, parents and community members are encouraged to donate at their high school to increase participation. The winning schools in each tier will receive a financial grant that each school will then decide how to distribute, whether to blood drive committee members for their continuing education (scholarships), department rewards, or for general program needs. If you have any questions about this program or wish to receive additional information regarding your school’s tier and financial opportunity, please discuss with your BloodSource Donor Recruitment Representative or blood drive advisor at your specific school.
