The Foundation awards one annual Suzanne Ledin Memorial Lectureship in collaboration with the California Blood Bank Society (CBBS). This award recognizes an individual who is actively involved in education, training, research and/or practice of a scientific nature pertaining to transfusion medicine and blood banking. The recipient of this yearly award, selected independently by the CBBS Scientific Program Committee, presents the Suzanne Ledin Memorial Lecture at the CBBS Annual Meeting.

Every year, the Suzanne Ledin Travel Award enables two Specialist in Blood Banking (SBB) program students to travel to and attend the American Association of Blood Banks (AABB) annual AABB meeting, with complimentary meeting registration and a generous grant for travel and lodging expenses.
