Give to the NYBCe's Research Institute  

NYBCe's prestigious research institute, Lindsley F. Kimbell Research Institute (LFKRI) is at the forefront of blood disease research. Our world renowned researchers take basic research and translate those findings into new tools to prevent and control disease. Made possible because of your generosity, the Enterprise can continue to their research in other areas beyond COVID-19, including transfusion medicine, cell therapy, hematology, infectious diseases, and epidemiology. From bench to bedside, LFKRI’s research makes a direct impact in protecting the blood supply, controlling the spread of HIV and understanding the physiology of various blood diseases.

  • New York Blood Center Enterprises Annual Fund 

NYBCe's Annual Fund is the backbone of our philanthropic initiatives. This fund provides support beyond our annual budget. It provides the organization with the flexibility to allocate resources toward our most immediate needs, which allows us to provide the greatest impact on our community.

New York Blood Center Enterprises (NYBCe) works to fulfill our commitment to save and sustain lives by providing blood products and hospital services to more than 600 hospitals and dozens of research organizations, academic institutions, and biomedical companies each year.  

The COVID-19 pandemic has severely reduced the number of units of donated blood collected at mobile drives at schools, places of worship, and community and corporate organizations. Prior to businesses, schools and places of worship adopting remote interaction, 70% of our red cell collections came from our mobile operations, with 30% coming from the collection centers. With the entire foundation of blood donation changing, NYBCe has taken on increased expenditures to expand donor recruitment and collection efforts. 

To deliver what matters most to our generous blood donors, blood drive sponsors, hospital and clinic partners, and others throughout the healthcare industry, Everyday Lifesaving Operation funding is needed.

  • Medical Services 

NYBC’s Medical Services provides state-of-the-art transfusion services and highly specialized direct patient care. Cellular therapy, bone marrow, transfusion services, hemophilia services, clinical research and education are all handled by our professional and medical staff who work closely with partnering hospitals to provide better treatment options and improve patient outcomes.

  • Little Doctors Program™

Creating blood donors of the future, NYBC’s Little Doctor’s Program teaches students about volunteerism, community service, and the science of blood through the organization of community blood drives.

  • Education & Scholarships
