Make it easy to contribute to your page by asking for a specific amount. Ask five friends to give $20, and just like that you've raised your first $100!
Every $100 allows Be The Match to add one more potential donor to the Be The Match Registry®. The money YOU raise grows the registry, provides grants to patient families, and funds research to make transplant safer and more available to all patients.

SNEAK PEEK AT MISSION #3
In September you’ll begin recruiting people to join the Be The Match Registry. But before getting started, wait for all the details so you and your team get points for each person you add.
ABOUT BE THE MATCH
Thousands of people are diagnosed every year with life-threatening blood cancers and diseases like leukemia and sickle cell. They depend on Be The Match and our supporters to find a match to save their life.
As the global leader in blood stem cell transplantation, we connect the world’s largest and most diverse registry of donors with patients who are their genetic match. 30% of patients needing a transplant have a match within their family. The other 70% of patients turn to us for help.
ELIMINATING THE HEALTH DISPARITY
Patients are more likely to match with someone of their same ethnicity, which is why it is crucial to grow and diversify the registry. Thousands of patients each year are still searching for their match!
By fundraising and adding more people to the registry, we can increase the odds and make sure every patient has an equal chance at finding their life-saving donor.
