Donating as a Community Donor

Community Donors


Do you want to donate blood and help save the lives of members of your community?

If so, you want to be what we call a Replacement Donor. It's easy, it's safe and if you want to make a positive difference in your community, donating blood at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center is a great way to do it.

Your donation of blood or platelets will go to a patient at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center who needs it. That's why you're so important to us, your donation help us keep healthy levels of blood supply for our hospitals.

We're a big hospital; two hospitals actually, the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center and Santa Monica-UCLA, and we're home to world-renowned organ transplant programs and leading edge hematology and oncology programs. Additionally, UCLA is a Level One Trauma Center, serving the needs of over 4 million people in western Los Angeles County. Our services and programs perform life-saving procedures every day and all of those procedures require very large amounts of blood products.

Blood is donated. Lives are saved. It's as simple and as important as that.

Have you ever wondered if you have what it takes to be a hero? When you donate blood, the answer is yes, you do have what it takes. Ask any patient at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center who is alive today thanks to our donors who gave blood and they will definitely agree that you are a hero.

Are you eligible to donate? It only takes a click and a few moments of your time to find out.
