ABOUT BE THE MATCH

For thousands of people diagnosed every year with life-threatening blood disorders and cancers like leukemia and lymphoma, a cure exists. Over the past 30 years Be The Match®, operated by the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP), has managed the largest and most diverse marrow registry in the world. We work every day to save lives through transplant.

BE THE MATCH FOUNDATION

The Be The Match Foundation® is the philanthropic arm of Be The Match® which raises funds to advance our life-saving mission in three vital areas: registry recruitment, patient assistance and research. Together with our employees and benefactors, we’re able to give patients hope and help when they need it most.

REGISTRY RECRUITMENT

Philanthropic support adds more marrow donors to the registry and gives hope to the thousands of patients searching for their match.

PATIENT ASSISTANCE

Since insurance doesn't cover all the costs associated with transplant, grants help patients financially so they can focus on healing instead.
