Ways to Give

There are so many ways your gift can make a difference.

Your financial contribution can have a positive impact on community health, help provide clinical therapies and services, and support research and new medical advances for patients in need.

Improving how we connect with and retain donors is key to growing the community blood supply.  Your donation will help us upgrade our donor centers, our equipment and the overall donor experience.   

With your help, The Foundation hosts community events and supports the healthcare initiatives of BioBridge Global and its subsidiaries.

Your gifts have helped replace seven aging bloodmobiles with state-of-the-art vehicles, as well as recruit donors for the South Texas Blood & Tissue, conduct thousands of blood drives every year and distribute blood to patients throughout South Texas.

Donations will assist with the extra costs associated with the promotion and the operational expenses including supplies needed to host blood drives at large-scale venues allowing for proper social distancing. Your donations also assist with efforts to create, recruit donors for and expand the convalescent plasma program.

The Texas Cord Blood Bank is a unique statewide source of ethnically diverse, lifesaving cord blood stem cells collected at partner hospitals throughout Texas and stored at BioBridge Global. Your donations support donor recruitment, collection, processing, cryo-storage and distribution of stem cells to patients battling blood cancers and disorders.

The Ruskin C. Norman Founder’s Circle was established in 2011 as a testament to Dr. Norman and his belief that cord blood could make a difference in the lives of patients fighting blood cancers and immune disorders. The Founders’ Circle provides funding to the Texas Cord Blood Bank for the collection, processing, storage and delivery of cord blood units around the world.

The Cellular Therapy Center provides bone marrow and peripheral blood stem cells to treat and cure diseases. This center is a critical partner to researchers investigating the potential of using stem cells in treatments for cancers, arthritis, heart disease, diabetes and neurological conditions.

Your donations in honor of Lori Wright’s service to the community will support the development of medical advances using cells from cord blood, marrow and other donated human cells and tissue.
