Blood Drives

Grand Valley State University has developed partnerships with the American Red Cross & Michigan Blood to host blood drives at GVSU campus locations. 

Student organizations hosting a blood drive are responsible for

  • Attending a pre-meeting with an American Red Cross or Michigan Blood representative one month prior to the blood drive
  • Providing volunteers the day of the drive
  • Promoting the drive
  • Encouraging potential blood donors to sign up for an appointment
  • Communicating with the American Red Cross/Michigan Blood and the CSLC

Student organizations wishing to host a blood drive should complete the Blood Drive Host Organization Application Form.
