Donor Payment Questions

Because plasma donation takes commitment and time, CSL Plasma provides payments to plasma donors. At the conclusion of your donation, your payment is loaded directly onto a reloadable card and is immediately ready for use. While payment amounts vary by location, eligible, qualified donors can get more than $1,000* their first month for donating life-saving plasma. Check with your preferred CSL Plasma collection center to see if they are participating in any other special promotions.

Donors may also opt to join the iGive Rewards® donor loyalty program, which earns you points for every completed donation. You can redeem the points anytime for Fast Cash or special Deal of the Day merchandise when available. The more you donate plasma, the more points you receive, and the rewards get better as you acquire higher status: Bronze, Silver, Gold or the exclusive Platinum level.
