Thank you for your interest in becoming an Olgam Life donor! You are welcome to stop by at any time, no appointment necessary.
Just be sure to bring:
1. Your current, unexpired ID
2. Proof of address within 50 miles of a center (a piece of mail or a bill with your full name and address will do)
3. Your social security card or a tax document with your full name and SSN displayed
The center will help you complete a health questionnaire and conduct a quick physical to determine your eligibility. After each successful donation, you will be paid between $50-$70 in NYC and between $50-$100 in Florida.
We hope to see you soon!
Donate your plasma for money as there is a worldwide need for plasma donors because plasma is a critical component of many life saving treatments. These plasma protein treatments (PPTs) are used for patients with chronic, rare, life-threatening illnesses that oftentimes require dozens of procedures each year. Your plasma donation could be the difference for someone fighting to stay alive.
Our plasma donation process uses the highest safety standards in a sterile environment and a cutting edge automated system for faster donation times. Our staff receives ongoing training to help ensure the most pleasant experience possible for our donors.
You’ll be greeted by a receptionist who will review your documentation. If it’s your first visit you’ll be given a brief physical. You’ll be asked to fill out a Donor History Questionnaire, and a center technician will take a small blood sample from your finger to check your protein and hematocrit levels.
If you’re eligible to donate, you will be taken to the donation area and seated in a comfortable reclining chair/bed, blood will be drawn, plasma will be separated from your blood, and red blood cells will be returned to your body through a process called plasmapheresis. Fear not, the process strictly follows FDA guidelines and is totally safe.
And you’re done! The whole process for a first-time donation is less than two hours, and subsequent visits are around 90 minutes with a VIP Donor Program for any Returning Donors. Your Olgam Life paycard will quickly reflect the added payment amount for your donation. Be sure that you drink plenty of fluids, eat a healthy meal and refrain from strenuous activities for the remainder of the day.
Because plasma is such a valuable asset in the medical world, Olgam Life offers reimbursement for the time it takes to donate. Payments are distributed onto a debit card, which is reloaded after every donation. We also offer additional rewards for return donors!
I have worked in healthcare for 12 years, including as an RN at a Dialysis center. I have been with Olgam Life and the Fulton St. location since it opened in July, 2021. I began in the Physician Substitute role and moved to the Center Manager position. Outside of Olgam, I have a German Shepherd named Koba who I am obsessed with. I have also been to 48 out of the 50 states, including camping in most of them. I love our center and have built great relationships with our repeat donors
I am a lifelong New Yorker living in Florida since late 2019. Coming from a history working in Emergency Medical Services, I prioritize the safety of our donors above all else. As a team, we are excited to be your host as you contribute to one of the most essential, lifesaving therapies in the world!
