Information for 16 Year Old Donors

Student - Can I Give?

Some states allow 16-year-olds to donate blood with parental consent.

A parent will need to review the Student's Guide to Blood Donation (also available in Spanish) and sign the parent/guardian consent form for the young adult to be able to donate blood.

If your state allows 16-year-olds to donate with parental consent, then your student will need to bring the signed form to his or her blood donation appointment. A signed consent form is required each time the student plans to donate.

Please enter your zip code below to download the appropriate form for your state.
