Global Blood Fund

Texas Blood Institute expanded its community with the creation of the Global Blood Fund – a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization.

The Global Blood Fund helps secure supplies most needed by blood donor centers in developing countries.  This includes blood pressure cuffs, donor beds, computers, and lab equipment.

  • Year-round initiatives are used to encourage blood donors to ‘doubly give’. These initiatives encourage donors to forgo receiving the ‘donor gift’ and Texas Blood Institute gives a monetary contribution of similar value to the Global Blood Fund.
  • Some blood drives – often sponsored by religious groups -  are dedicated exclusively to Global Blood Fund.
Support has been provided to blood centers in countries such as Kenya, Zimbabwe, Haiti, Mexico, Japan, Georgia and Armenia.
