Organize a Drive
Gift of Life has been organizing bone marrow drives for more than 25 years.
We work with patients and their families and friends to organize community-wide campaigns, student groups on college campuses, employee drives at corporations, and other creative events including fairs, weddings, and more.
By organizing a donor drive, you can give tremendous hope to thousands of patients searching every day. And if you set up a Donor Circle, you will be able to track how many donors you recruit, how many matches are found, and you will be notified whenever someone you swabbed donates bone marrow or stem cells to save the life of a patient!
Interested? Contact a member of our recruitment team today to discuss options. Gift of Life staff is equipped to train and guide you through the process to make your drive a success. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why Work With Us?
- Commitment to Quality: Gift of Life has been performing HLA-AB (intermediate/high resolution) and DRB1/DQB1 (high resolution) typing for years, long before many other registries adopted such practices.
- Turnaround Time: Gift of Life’s average turnaround time for testing is based on the current workload of the laboratory. In most cases it can take an average of two to three weeks. This can be expedited in the case of patient-directed recruitment campaigns.
- Innovation: Gift of Life was the first registry in the world to use bloodless testing at drives with cheek swabs, first to introduce a smartphone app to make secure registration fast and easy, and the first to open a registry-integrated Stem Cell Collection Center.
- Integrity in Leadership: The CEO is both the founder of the organization and a transplant survivor. Gift of Life Marrow Registry is accredited by the World Marrow Donor Association and complies with National Marrow Donor Program requirements. We are certified as a GuideStar Platinum Participant, the highest level possible.
