General Information:

Donating Blood

Each year, thousands of generous faculty, staff and students regularly donate blood and platelets to help meet the needs of patients receiving care at UCLA Hospitals. However, only between 65-80 percent of what UCLA patients need is collected through our donor centers. Some of the reasons include the limited shelf-life of blood and platelets products and the increase in the number of transplants performed at our hospitals. Therefore, the need for blood and platelet donations at UCLA continues to grow. 

Patients' lives depend on donors like you. Please consider scheduling your life-saving appointment today.

To donate or for additional information, call (310) 825-0888  extension 2 or e-mail us at [email protected]. Walk-ins  are welcome at our centers.
