Memorial Donations & Sponsorships

Whether it’s small or large, each gift made to LifeServe’s scholarship program helps us continue rewarding high school and college students for their hard work hosting blood drives during months of high need! Students are our future, and in more ways than one! Twenty percent of LifeServe Blood Center’s blood donations come from high school and college students, ensuring a stable blood supply year round. People who start the blood donation habit early tend to keep on giving for years to come. The same applies to those who are unable to donate, but still do their part to support the cause! We have student volunteers and interns, and pertinent to this letter, student scholarship program participants.

LifeServe Blood Center offers funding through our student scholarship program in exchange for students’ commitment to saving lives and supporting the community through blood drive sponsorship. Our scholarship program is funded solely through sponsorship, memorial donations, and monetary donations.
