Commonwealth Transfusion Foundation (CTF) is a non-profit, private foundation whose mission is to support Virginia based transfusion and healthcare initiatives.
Commonwealth Transfusion Foundation is not a blood center, nor are we affiliated with any blood center. We are a freestanding private foundation dedicated to advancing the art and science of transfusion medicine.
Richmond Metropolitan Blood Services (RMBS) was established in January 1974 to collect, process, test, and distribute blood for hospital patients in Richmond, Virginia. Over the next several years, RMBS’ reach grew to include Charlottesville and other areas outside Richmond, and RMBS changed its name to Virginia Blood Services.
The Commonwealth Transfusion Foundation is governed by its Board of Directors which includes 6 volunteer directors and the Foundation’s Chief Executive Officer. Each member is vetted by the Board’s Nominating Committee and appointed by the full Board. Members may serve up to six years (two three-year terms).
The CTF Board sets policies related to grantmaking, funding priorities and initiatives, investment management, and governance. The Board oversees internal and independent audits.
