*Individuals between the ages of 18-64, weigh between 110 and 500 pounds, and are in general good health may be eligible to participate in the Specialized Donor Program.
**You will be paid with a gift card at the time of prescreen or collection or a check will be mailed to your home following the appointment.
^If you qualify as an eligible candidate, your prescreen results will be valid for 90 days. If you are not contacted to give a collection within those 90 days, we may contact you to schedule another prescreen visit. You will be compensated $50** for each prescreen visit.
^^If you are contacted for a collection, the type of collection will vary. We will let you know which type of appointment is being scheduled.
The collection types are:
- A Leukopak collection, which takes approximately 3-5 hours and is compensated starting at $300.
- A Cell Therapy Blood (Whole Blood) collection or Leukocytes (Buffy Coat) collection, which takes approximately 1-2 hours and is compensated starting at $200.
Please note, you can continue to donate blood, plasma, or platelets while in the Specialized Donor Program, but you must wait between donating blood and giving a Specialized Donor Program collection. Please call 1-833-595-2214 and a Red Cross team member can provide more information.
