Many families find that their insurance doesn’t cover all the costs associated with a transplant. These costs include the search for a donor or cord blood unit, travel and lodging when the transplant center is far from home, caregiver or patient lost wages, prescription co-pays, and many other transplant related costs. Be The Match® helps provide financial assistance to patients and their families in need of financial assistance before, during, and after transplant. These grants help patients financially so they can focus on what matters most – healing.
Here's how your support impacts the lives of those in need of patient assistance:
Meals and Transportation
$100 covers two days of meals for a patient and their caregiver during outpatient recovery.
Transplant Recovery Grant
$1,000 Transplant Recovery Grant: Patients must be accompanied by a full-time caregiver for the first 100 days post-transplant. Up to two incomes may be lost. Grants help with uninsured expenses.

Crisis Grant Fund
