Be The Match has been entrusted by Congress to respond to the public and the need to sustain the marrow donor registry. The reason we need your financial support is to defray the costs associated with adding a new donor to the registry. Costs are in three areas, registration, enrollment and ongoing registry communication/engagement.
Be The Match is a non-profit organization and we do ask for help in funding/fundraising to help to offset the cost of processing the tests and do our life saving work. The cost to enter a person into the registry is about $100.00. We rely on our sponsors and volunteers to help us fundraise. This fundraising does not need to be the entire $100.00 per person. We can work with sponsors to discuss such options as asking donors at the drive if they can make a donation that is tax deductible, and other fundraising ideas.
