YouTube playlist

Watch your YouTube playlist of inspiring stories about patients and donors and fun ways to raise money and awareness

 

MISSION #2

Launch your fundraising page! It only takes a couple minutes.
(Under 18? Make sure your parent or guardian is nearby to provide consent.)

1

Go to BeTheMatch.org/HOSAFundraising and enter your info.

2

Enter your chapter’s charter #. If you don’t know it, check the list.

3

Customize your personal page, then connect it to your social media.

4

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.

FUNDRAISING TIP

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!

WHY $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.

 

MISSION #3

Begin adding potential stem cell donors to the Be The Match Registry®!

1

If you have not launched your team page, do so now! (Under 18? Make sure your parent or guardian is nearby to provide consent.)

 

  1. Go to BeTheMatch.org/HOSAFundraising

  2. Choose "Start a page" and enter your initial information.

  3. Customize your team page, then connect it to your social media.

2

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!
 

3

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! 

 

  1. Use all the knowledge you’ve learned from Mission One to explain our mission to your friends and family 

  2. Check out virtual marketing materials and create a free Canva account to customize our templates with your recruitment code

  3. Share on social media and direct people to Join.BeTheMatch.org/YOURCODE

REMEMBER

Always provide your chapter's recruitment code so we can track how many people you have added to the Registry!

 

MISSION #4

Play for cures! Keep recruiting and FUNdraising when you join FUNd Fest.

1

Plan your (COVID-appropriate) game
Host a video game live streaming event, online board game night or Zoom charades—get creative! Check out the activities list for more ideas, then check out our CURE and GIVE cards (think bingo) and download a custom Zoom background or two – all found on the Resources page after you log in.

2

Add your game details to your team page
Launch or update your team page at BeTheMatch.org/HOSAFundraising, set your FUNdraising and recruitment goals, and suggest activities and financial donations to participate. (Make sure to add your chapter's join code!)

3

Have fun and make an impact!
Log in to your team page and check out the FUNd Fest resources
 for everything you need to promote your life-saving fun. Then email, text and call to invite your friends and family to play. Don’t forget to include the link to your page so even if they can’t make it to your game, they could donate or join the registry.

QUICK TIP

Halloween’s almost here - host a Marroween virtual costume contest! Invite your friends and suggest a donation to enter or vote (remind them that donating isn’t scary). Then host your costume contest on Zoom or Google Meet (bonus points for eerie music or backgrounds).

Don’t forget to snap some spooky selfies and post them with #fundfest and #HOSAsavelives
