Blood Bank of Alaska (BBA) is the only blood bank located in Alaska. Our team works with volunteer blood donors in Alaska to save lives every day. Serving the community since 1962, our blood bank has grown with the needs of Alaska's hospitals and the patients they support. The continuous changes in medical technology, coupled with the unique location of the communities we serve means that our team must continuously maintain state-of-the-art laboratory facilities to provide efficient collection and distribution of blood products. Our goal is to provide in-state testing of all blood and blood products for emergency response management.
Your donation can make the difference during an emergency response situation in Alaska. This laboratory expansion will increase response time and improve the overall safety of the blood supply during our time of need. You never know when you or a loved one might need this precious gift. Support patients in our state by expanding the current laboratory services at 1215 Airport Heights.
Join us today by donating to help our neighbors from Barrow to Ketchikan.
How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
Blood Bank of Alaska was founded by Alaskans to serve others in the community by ensuring that every hospital and medical center in the state has a safe and adequate supply of blood at all times. We are the only blood collection service in the state, and a critical foundation for Alaska’s healthcare. Did you know that every 2 seconds someone in the United States needs blood, or that 1 in every 3 people will need blood at some point in their lifetime? Blood and blood products are required not just for trauma, but also for routine and elective surgery, for cancer treatment, and for new and evolving therapies in all fields of medicine. As our population in Alaska grows, so too does the need for blood, blood testing, and blood processing services.
Your Pick.Click.Give. donation makes a difference in many ways. It provides much needed funds to purchase supplies like the bags we use to collect blood, equipment like the centrifuges we use to separate blood products, training for our staff, and furniture and snacks to ensure our blood donors have a positive recovery experience after donating.
Every gift makes a difference and helps Blood Bank of Alaska meet the increasing demand for blood and specialty blood products, improve the safety and efficiency of our operations, and expand our services to better serve Alaskans. Together we are saving lives.
