Blood Drives

Become a Donor. Give the Gift of Life.

Here at the University of Michigan, we use more than 100,000 blood components annually and more than 250 units per day on average to treat patients requiring blood transfusions. Without the generosity of blood donors, we wouldn't be able to do the work we do each day.

When you become a blood donor, you become a potential lifesaver. The need is constant. The gratification is instant. If you can give, please do.

For more U-M locations, go to to locate a donation site convenient to your home or workplace. Just use the "goblue" sponsor code and all upcoming U-M blood drives will be found in your search.

These drives are now open to the public in response to the nationwide severe blood shortage. Donations are critical, especially for those with Type O blood.
