Student Blood Drive Incentive Programs

Student Incentive Program

Bloodworks Northwest is offering a Student Incentive Program to high school and college students and School Groups to aid in the recruitment of blood donors to Pop-Up locations and Donor Centers this school year. We have Scholarship and Fundraiser opportunities for students and a newly added perk for high school seniors!

Student Scholarship and Group Fundraiser
Students/School Groups can choose between either recruiting donors for a Half-Day Takeover or consecutive Two-Week Virtual Drive to donate at either a Donor Center or Pop-Up Location.

  • Individual Scholarship: Students earn Scholarship rewards by recruiting donors to earn money for college expenses, including tuition, fees, books, supplies, or even to pay off student loans. Students receive a Certificate of Excellence in leadership and project management experience for their professional portfolio.
  • School Group Fundraiser: Designed for school groups to recruit blood donors by hosting a group fundraise to earn money to use towards group events, fees, books, supplies, equipment, programs, or related educational expenses. See the program’s Official Rules for a complete description.

School groups: An administration-approved and institutionally recognized high school, college, or accredited education institution organization or club consisting of four or more people that is student based and/or focused, tied to a department on campus with oversight from that department, or whose purpose is intended to be a student learning experience.

To participate, a student must be at least 16 years old and enrolled in high school, college, or an accredited educational institution. 

Before we can schedule your scholarship period, you will need to gather a minimum number of commitments from people who pledge to donate blood at your drive.
