In the Community

We strive to positively impact the lives of individual donors and their families, support local businesses, provide job opportunities, and to be responsible neighbors in communities where we work and live.

Individual donors

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.

Local businesses

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.

Job opportunities

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.

Professional and patient advocacy groups

Healthcare and patient advocacy organizations can also count on us to help advance their goals. We join with local chambers of commerce and other professional associations to better connect with the businesses in the communities we serve.

We also partner with a number of local and national healthcare and patient advocacy organizations that share our mission of improving the health and lives of people, including:
