True to the vision of its founders in 1948, LifeShare is a community-focused charity. Gifts of blood remain in the community where they were given. But beyond returning blood to the community for area residents’ physical well-being, LifeShare also gives back to the region by supporting the life of the mind.
Students, administration and faculty across Northeast Ohio provide LifeShare with approximately 20 percent of the blood supplied to patients annually. To recognize this tremendous contribution, in 2002 the LifeShare Community Blood Services Scholarship Program was established.
Elementary schools, middle schools, high schools and colleges sponsoring blood drives earn scholarships or grants based on the number of donations made in a school year. Since the program’s inception, LifeShare has contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to students’ scholarships and education-based grants.
