DonorThe campus community’s participation in the Staff Council blood drives has made CU Boulder not only Vitalant’s top education partner, but also the top overall account among all blood drive hosts in Colorado over the last few years!

Our current drive runs August 31 - September 2, 2021, so let’s continue to save lives and positively impact our community.

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 to be worn while donating.
