In April 2011, we rolled out IMPACT, a donor loyalty and online scheduling program. The program name, IMPACT, highlights the tremendous impact volunteer blood donors have on patients and families in the communities we serve. By giving blood on a routine basis and encouraging others to do the same, volunteer blood donors help save lives by providing a critical resource that can come from no other source!
Benefits of the new IMPACT program include:
* A user friendly system with easy navigation
* A donor profile that records donation history and loyalty points
* Improved communication to donors via email
* An online store to redeem loyalty points
You can also use the IMPACT program to search for upcoming blood drives in your area, as well as schedule an appointment to donate. We think you’ll enjoy how this system allows you to easily search for places to donate in your area.
IMPACT’s donor loyalty programs operate on a points-per-donation basis. Participants receive points for each donation based on donation type (whole blood, platelet, double red cell, etc.). Participants can also earn bonus points for donating on specific days of the year when blood collection typically dips (ie. holiday weekends). Donors can redeem points in the online store for logo apparel and gifts that will tell the world you make an IMPACT by being a blood donor!
Questions about the new system? Try it out at www.bloodcenterIMPACT.org! Existing blood donors can log in to the system right away by using your Donor ID number and your date of birth as your password (mm/dd/yyyy format, including slashes).
You should have received, or will be receiving, a new Donor Card with a new ID number. Please use this new number to log in to the system. If you don’t know your Donor ID number, you can select “I forgot my Donor ID” and log in with your last name and other information. Click here to download a pdf with IMPACT "How to" instructions!

Following its merger in 2010 with a fellow not-for-profit, community blood center, Central Illinois Community Blood Center is a division of Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center (MVRBC). Both CICBC and MVRBC donors alike will use the IMPACT donor loyalty and online scheduling program.
