Plan an Event

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.

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.

GETTING STARTED

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.

COLLEGES

Holding a donor registration drive at your school is an amazing and rewarding experience. It’s a great way to enhance your resumé and establish a lifesaving legacy at your school. Every person you register is another possible chance to save a life.
