Areas of Need
Blood donations are NYBCe's primary focus because it saves lives! If you are unable to donate, visit our centers, or are indeed an active blood donor and want to support our organization to the next level, you can give a financial gift. Because of you, we can help communities on a local and national scale to achieve a healthier tomorrow for generations to come.

Give to Research
NYBCe’s Lindsley F. Kimbell Research Institute (LFKRI) is at the forefront of blood disease research. Our world renowned researchers take basic science research and translate those findings into new tools to prevent and control disease. Made possible because of your generosity, the Enterprise can continue to advancing LFKRI research in other areas beyond COVID-19, including transfusion medicine, cell therapy, hematology, infectious diseases, and epidemiology. From bench to bedside, LFKRI’s research makes a direct impact in protecting the blood supply, controlling the spread of HIV and understanding the physiology of various blood diseases.
Give to Programs

- New York Blood Center Enterprises Annual Fund
New York Blood Center Enterprises (NYBCe) works to fulfill our commitment to save and sustain lives by providing blood products and hospital services to more than 600 hospitals and dozens of research organizations, academic institutions, and biomedical companies each year.
The COVID-19 pandemic has severely reduced the number of units of donated blood collected at mobile drives at schools, places of worship, and community and corporate organizations. Prior to businesses, schools and places of worship adopting remote interaction, 70% of our red cell collections came from our mobile operations, with 30% coming from the collection centers. With the entire foundation of blood donation changing, NYBCe has taken on increased expenditures to expand donor recruitment and collection efforts.
To deliver what matters most to our generous blood donors, blood drive sponsors, hospital and clinic partners, and others throughout the healthcare industry, Everyday Lifesaving Operation funding is needed.
