Become a donor
We want to make the process as simple and easy for potential donors so donating can become a continued part of your routine. By building longstanding partnerships with donors, we can help ensure hospitals have a reliable supply of platelets for patients in need.
A look inside the donation process
Donating platelets may be new to you. Here’s a quick overview of the donation process and how we process your platelets at Trusting Heart Blood Center for hospitals to use in the future:
A relatively small amount of blood is drawn from your arm into an automated blood cell separator machine.
The blood is rapidly spun to separate platelets from the other blood components.
These cells then go directly into a sterile, single-use disposable kit.
The rest of your blood components are returned to you through your arm.
The cycle is then repeated several times until the donation process is complete, with our trained staff closely monitoring every step along the way.
We’ve got answers.
Doing good adds up to rewards.
Upon completion of the Onsite Health Assessment you will be given a $15 honorarium. Once you qualify as a donor, you can earn $50 at each visit upon successful completion of the donation process.
We compensate our donors for taking the time to save lives. Become part of the movement.
