About us

The Blood Center Foundation of the Inland Northwest was founded in 2013 to raise funds and provide financial support to the mission of blood banking and related services formerly carried on by the Inland Northwest Blood Center, now Vitalant, in eastern Washington and north Idaho, and to other non-profits and charitable undertakings related to healthcare in that market and those communities.  Our grants provide financial support  for:

  • Education
  • Technology
  • Research

Sometimes our support is direct, bringing opportunity to continue one's personal education and research.  Other times it is more broad-based, uniting technologies and equipment to enhance programs. 

The Blood Center Foundation of the Inland Northwest moves people and organizations forward that enhance health and wellness for blood banking, transfusion and transplantation medicine.
