Donors are our lifeblood, and we recognize and reward their commitment to donating plasma with payments that support financial well-being and increase household earnings. The extra income donors can make creates great value for them and their families.
Retailers benefit because our donors put money back into their local economy by spending at grocery stores, gas stations, restaurants, and more. For some communities, plasma donation payments can add more than $3.5 million in total retail spending in 1 year.
We also support the communities we serve with job opportunities. We recruit the people who staff our plasma donation centers from a local pool of candidates – providing valuable skills training, human resources support, and opportunities for promotion. An Octapharma Plasma donation center supports about $2 million annually in competitive wages, improving employment rates and productivity for local communities.
