Who We Are

Wolverines for life is a collaborative effort between the University of Michigan community, the American Red Cross, Be the Match, Gift of Life Michigan, Eversight, and Team Michigan. We are students, athletes, alumni, staff, faculty and campus and hospital leadership and we are allied with a common purpose: dedication to saving lives through donations. 

Our goals are straightforward

  • Implement a University-wide zero tolerance policy for:
    • organ wait list deaths
    • deaths due to lack of blood products
    • deaths due to lack of bone marrow matches
  • Educate each member of the U-M community about the need for donors

Become a Wolverine for Life today by learning more about how you can become a life-saving donor.

Be a Hero at the Big House is making its return on November 1st! Unfortunately due to last-minute changes to the football schedule, we’ve moved the blood drive to two locations in Ann Arbor: the Kensington Hotel near Briarwood and the Graduate Ann Arbor downtown. Also, don’t miss a day full of live-streamed entertainment and information! Click here for more information.
