Organize Events, Save Lives

Gift of Life’s Young Professionals Committees are groups of emerging leaders who dedicate their time, talents, networks, and resources to raise support for the work of Gift of Life Marrow Registry. Volunteer committees have been organized in cities around the country so that young professionals can network with peers while supporting Gift of Life’s mission. Whether you are a donor or recipient, a supporter or volunteer, this is a great opportunity to make new friends and form new networks while helping to save lives.

Activities include committee meet-ups and social activities, where we help organize fundraising events, swabbing drives, and the annual Celebrating Life events in New York and Los Angeles honoring donors, recipients, supporters, and their families and friends. We’d love you to bring your skill set to the table to help us make each of our fundraisers a tremendous success. 

We not only have fun, we make valuable contributions to the Gift of Life Marrow Registry, and you are welcome to join us.  Please complete the form below to apply.
