Ways to Give

The National Blood Clot Alliance, along with the many healthcare providers, patients, and community leaders who interact with us daily and rely on us for important information and support, is dedicated to advancing the prevention, early diagnosis, and successful treatment of life-threatening blood clots.

Thanks to our generous donors, volunteers, and supporters, NBCA’s programs build public awareness about blood clots, while addressing the broad information needs of a diverse community of individuals affected by this disease, as well as their caregivers and healthcare providers.

Philanthropic gifts offer vital support for this work, helping NBCA fulfill its commitment to create a future in which the number of people suffering and dying from blood clots in the United States is reduced significantly. NBCA invites you to consider making a gift, and, in doing so, to become a partner in the fight against life-threatening blood clots. Below are details about the many ways to give to NBCA.

Monthly Gifts

The fight against blood clots is ongoing. By becoming a monthly donor, you can join a very special group of loyal supporters who provide a dependable source of funding year-round to fuel the continuous fight against this often overlooked public health crisis. Signing up is easy, and you can make changes to your gift at any time.


Memorial and Tribute Gifts

Making a memorial or tribute gift is a powerful way to honor or remember your loved one by giving hope to the nearly one million Americans who suffer a blood clot each year.


Some other ways to honor or remember a loved one include:

  • Organize a fundraising event in memory or honor of a loved one.
  • Create your own fundraising page where you can share your story, add photos, and invite family, friends, and colleagues to make online gifts to your fundraising page.
  • Make an annual gift to remember important anniversaries and milestones.
  • Request that donations be made in lieu of flowers.

Should you want to direct family and friends to make gifts to the NBCA in lieu of flowers, the following is suggested wording for an obituary or other tribute: In lieu of flowers, gifts may be made to the National Blood Clot Alliance in memory of (deceased name) to support programs dedicated to advancing the prevention, early diagnosis and successful treatment of life-threatening blood clots at the National Blood Clot Alliance, PO Box 825687, Philadelphia, PA 19182-5687 or online via bit.ly/NBCADonate.

If you are interested in planning a fundraising event, please contact Tarin Patrikis and/or refer to NBCA’s Interest Questionnaire and our 12 Steps to Planning a Successful Blood Clot Awareness Event toolkit for guidance.

Special Occasion Gifts


Looking for other ways to make a difference? Consider asking your friends to provide hope to the nearly one million Americans who suffer a blood clot each year by making a gift to NBCA in honor of your birthday instead of buying gifts.


Are you getting married? Make the occasion even more special by asking your guests to donate to NBCA instead of registering for gifts, or consider making a meaningful contribution in lieu of wedding favors. Your special day can have a significant impact on the prevention, early diagnosis and successful treatment of life-threatening blood clots.

Matching Gifts

Do you want to double or even triple the impact of your gift? Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions or volunteer hours made by their employees, retirees and/or employees’ spouses. Find out if your gift is eligible for matching by typing your employer’s name in the search field below. Many employers will even allow you as much as one year to go back and apply for matching on a previous donation made.

Facebook Fundraisers

Creating a Facebook fundraiser is an easy way to raise money for a cause that’s important to you, such as blood clot awareness and education. Many people create Facebook fundraisers to support NBCA for their birthday, or other special events like Blood Clot Awareness Month in March. It’s easy for people to donate, without ever leaving Facebook: Check out Facebook’s step-by-step guide to setting up a fundraiser on your page.

Our supporters are important to us, and we would like to show our appreciation. Please email tpatrikis@stoptheclot.org with your name, mailing address, and email so that we can properly thank you for your support.
