How is DKMS funded?

Until 1994, DKMS received financial support from the German cancer organization Deutsche Krebshilfe and from the German Ministry for Health. But we now generate our revenues in two main ways: donations from private individuals and businesses, and reimbursements from healthcare providers. The reimbursements are used to update our database, carry out further lab tests and organize blood stem cell collections.
