Donate Money
Charitable contributions are urgently needed and gratefully accepted by Community Blood Center/Community Tissue Services (CBC/CTS).

Your generous financial contribution to Community Blood Center will not only help purchase needed equipment like bloodmobiles and blood collection machines, it will also help CBC/CTS educate and create awareness of the importance of blood and tissue donation.

Financial gifts from grateful blood and tissue graft recipients and donors as well as concerned individuals, foundations and corporations in our community have allowed CBC to undertake an expansion/renovation of its main downtown Dayton campus, develop grade school and high school blood educational programs, promote the need for blood and tissue and purchase vital, state-of-the-art laboratory equipment.

CBC/CTS extends our gratitude to all those who support us through financial contributions and we ask for your continued help and generosity.
