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: October 9th!

Join us for our biggest event of the year: Be a Hero at the Big House! Donate blood at Michigan Stadium in an effort to help defeat OSU in our annual Blood Battle competition. Join the organ donor registry or be screened as a bone marrow donor. There will be games, entertainment, giveaways, special guests, and fun for the whole family!
