NCBB for Generations to Come

Welcome to Nebraska Comminity Blood Bank's (NCBB) 2022 end-of-year campaign and thank you for playing a part in saving lives like Katherine's.

Katherine's family is thankful to have you help support Nebraska Blood Bank so she can live a healthy life with her family. Your financial donation truly makes you part of life-changing stories that take place daily in our community.

The challenges and obstacles facing the community blood supply have not ended as we transition to a post-pandemic world. But, with your financial support, the opportunities to continue our lifesaving work are limitless. Your financial gift will make a difference!

**Note: Please be assured that all funds from your donation stay in NCBB's local Community.

Discover a Cause You Would Like to Fund

  • NCBB Annual Fund

    To deliver the gifts of our generous blood donors to our hospital and clinic partners, and others throughout the healthcare industry, funding is needed for everyday lifesaving operations. Your financial donation provides NCBB with the flexibility to allocate resources toward our most immediate needs, which allows us to provide the greatest impact in our community. With the blood donation landscape changing, NCBB faces increased expenditures related to recruiting blood donors and operating our donor centers. 

  • Updated Blood Donor Centers

    Since the pandemic, blood donor behavior has shifted. Prior to 2020, about half of our blood collections came from community blood drives, and half from blood centers. We are now collecting only 32% from community blood drives and 68% at blood centers. Your financial donation will support upgrades to current donor centers. With the community’s support, we can update fixed sites in Lincoln and Omaha. Individual and corporate donations are crucial and will help us maintain and improve these blood donor sites.

  • New and Updated 2023 Blood Donor Bus

    Buses allow us to serve communities that may not have a physical location to host a blood drive or to help us host smaller drives.  Your gift toward a Donor Bus will allow NCBB to provide access to an expanded population and diverse neighborhoods.  Our buses can be branded with sponsor logos, showcasing the sponsor’s commitment to public health and blood science in Nebraska.

  • New Blood Transport Vehicles

    NCBB maintains a small fleet of vehicles to transport blood products from our donor centers and community blood drives to our laboratory and to deliver blood to our hospitals. These vehicles operate 24/7/365 to meet the needs of hospital patients. Your financial gift toward the procurement and maintenance of new blood transport vehicles ensures that we stay on the road, delivering blood products safely and efficiently to our local communities.
