Coloradans who wish to give monetary contributions to benefit Vitalant's life-transforming work throughout Colorado, Wyoming and Rapid City, South Dakota are invited to donate to the Bonfils Blood Center Donor Advised Fund through Community First Foundation.
Following Bonfils Blood Center's merger with Blood Systems, now Vitalant, in 2017, Bonfils Blood Center Foundation was dissolved. In partnership with Colorado-based Community First Foundation, Bonfils Blood Center Foundation carried forward its remaining assets and a $5M gift from Bonfils Blood Center through the creation of a donor-advised fund. This fund enables community gifts given over the last 20 years to have a lasting impact on the future and stability of our organization.
While gifts can no longer be made directly to Bonfils Blood Center Foundation, should you wish to continue supporting Vitalant's Mountain Division with financial gifts you may make gifts online through this page or you may send checks made payable to Community First Foundation, along with a note that the gift is for the Bonfils Blood Center Donor-Advised Fund, and mail to:
Community First Foundation
5855 Wadsworth Bypass, Unit A
Arvada, CO 80003
An advisory committee made up of former Bonfils boards of trustees and staff has been established to provide oversight of the funds. This group will regularly evaluate funding requests from the blood center and approve fund distribution from the donor-advised fund to support projects and programs that benefit Vitalant operations and our lifesaving mission.
