Organize a Drive
Hosting a bone marrow donor registration drive is fun, easy and rewarding. We regularly work with families, colleges, community organizations, small businesses and big corporations to host successful events. Afterwards, we provide updates when someone you registered has matched and donated.
Have a Swab Party
Make lifesaving the life of your next party with our Swab Party Kit. It includes everything you need to register up to 50 guests as potential bone marrow donors and it’s free! It’s a great way to enhance a birthday party, book club meeting, BBQ or any other gathering!
We host thousands of drives every year and always need volunteers to help make them more successful. Volunteering is a great experience that includes promoting the event, educating and registering potential donors, setting up and wrapping up.
The more donors we register, the more lives we can save. We’d love to team up with you to host a registration drive that can make a big difference in the lives of all the patients searching for donors now and in the future.
Once you’ve expressed an interest in holding a drive, our team is ready to provide you with all the support and materials you need to make it a success. We’ll assign you a drive coach who will help you with everything from selecting a date to training volunteers to registering donors on the day of the drive. It’s a truly great experience and one that many drive hosts love to repeat.
Doing Good Looks Great!
Joining us to save lives feels amazing and helps you stand out on your campus, at your company or in your community. It’s something to add to your resumé and tout on your social networks, especially every time we update you with the news that one of your registrants went on to donate.
