Thanks to the generosity of blood donors who contributed funds through the ImpactLife “Good Giving” program, ImpactLife will make a donation of $15,895 to the National Forest Foundation this month. Volunteer blood donors were given the opportunity to contribute to National Forest Foundation (NFF) during the first quarter of 2024.

ImpactLife selected National Forest Foundation as its Good Giving partner during the first quarter of 2024, and 1083 donors chose to designate the value of their post-donation voucher to NFF during that time frame. As a result, the total donation amount ImpactLife will make to NFF on behalf of its donors this spring totals $15,895. The blood center's current Good Giving partner is Best Friends Animal Society.
