Butler University

Versiti has teamed up with Butler University to save lives in Indiana. Our co-branded blood donation bus, which travels across campus and throughout Indiana, makes it easy for donors to hop on, give blood and save up to three lives. Additionally, Versiti and Butler are committed to providing career opportunities and fostering diversity and inclusion efforts across the student body.


Columbus Zoo

Most people don’t picture exotic animals or family-fun parks when they think about donating blood. But, thanks to our partners at the Columbus Zoo, that is exactly what local donors have in store.

From exciting views of exotic animals to waterparks, haunted houses and other seasonal festivities, donor events at the Columbus Zoo are different on purpose. Not only do they invite families to come in and have fun, but they also make it easy for blood donors with families to stay involved without missing out.


Indianapolis Colts

Versiti has partnered with the Indianapolis Colts for more than 20 years and is proud to be the Exclusive Community Blood Program of the Colts.

Each year, the Colts host the Bleed Blue Blood drive, which is Versiti’s largest, single-day blood drive, and has saved more than 300,000 lives.

In addition, the Colts support our mission by hosting blood drives, supporting our sickle cell education initiatives, hosting the High School Leadership Challenge, and lending their brand to highlight one of our blood donation buses in the community.
