Blood Drive Selfie Collage from June 2020The campus community’s participation in the Staff Council blood drives has made CU Boulder not only Vitalant’s top education account, but also the top overall account among all blood drive hosts in Colorado over the last few years!

Our current drive is currently underway through September 6th, so let’s continue to save lives and positively impact our community in 2020.

“CU Blood Drive Week” is moving off campus to Vitalant’s Boulder and Westminster donation centers August 22 – September 6.  All donors are encouraged to make an appointment and must be feeling well and healthy at the time of their donation.  Please check the latest requirements and safety precautions at  Masks/face coverings are required.

Donors who send a photo of themselves wearing CU-logoed apparel during their donation can enter to win one of four $50 Amazon gift cards*. To enter the drawing, please send your CU pride blood donation photo to by September 7.

To schedule an appointment please visit or call 303-363-2300.  At your appointment, please share the CU Boulder blood drive code with Vitalant team members. The CU Blood Drive Code is 0248.
