Start by learning all about Be The Match, so you’re 100% prepared for future missions!
Launch your fundraising page! It only takes a couple minutes.
(Under 18? Make sure your parent or guardian is nearby to provide consent.)
Go to BeTheMatch.org/HOSAFundraising and enter your info.
Enter your chapter’s charter #. If you don’t know it, check the list.
Customize your personal page, then connect it to your social media.
Spread the word! Invite your team, friends and family to visit your page and make a contribution.
Once you've registered, you'll have access to more tips and tools.
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.
Begin adding potential stem cell donors to the Be The Match Registry®!
If you have not launched your team page, do so now! (Under 18? Make sure your parent or guardian is nearby to provide consent.)
Choose "Start a page" and enter your initial information.
Customize your team page, then connect it to your social media.
After setting up your team page, your advisor will receive an email from your Be The Match Representative. Your Be The Match Representative will work with you to setup an unique recruitment code and a link to edit virtual recruitment materials. Your unique code will be the way we track how many people your chapter adds to the registry.
Your Be The Match contact can also work with your chapter to learn more about how to add people to the registry, ensure you have the resources you need, and brainstorm fun ways to add more potential donors!
Once you’ve started a conversation with your Be The Match Representative and you’ve received your unique recruitment code, you’re ready to start adding people to the Registry!
Always provide your chapter's recruitment code so we can track how many people you have added to the Registry!
