Be The Match volunteers help cure blood cancer every day
Volunteers like you are special: you give your time and talent without asking for anything except the chance to make a difference in the world. As a Be The Match volunteer, you have a direct impact on the lives of patients and donors worldwide.
We can't do it without you
Volunteers are vital to the life-saving work of Be The Match. In 2012, volunteers contributed more than 94,000 hours—equal to more than 45 years and $2 million of paid work. With your help, we can do even more to tell people about Be The Match, raise funds at events and add potential donors to the registry. Your time has a real impact on the lives of patients and their families.
You choose the way to help that's best for you
Be The Match has volunteer opportunities no matter where you live, what your skills and interests may be, or how much time you can offer.
As a volunteer, you can work as part of a team or on your own; you can help out at a local event such as a Be The Match Walk+Run, help out on a one-time basis or provide longer-term support. You can work with people preparing to donate marrow or you can work to support patients in the transplant process. You can help spread the word about Be The Match using new media, or by writing letters to legislative leaders.
Whether you’re looking to organize a marrow registry drive, raise funds to support the mission or provide professional expertise, there are volunteer roles that will fuel your inspiration and give patients the hope of finding their life-saving marrow match.
You can make a real difference
Be The Match has the cure for many types of cancer: the millions of registry members and other supporters who step up every day to save lives. Your work as a volunteer can directly affect patients and their families by adding that one registry member who matches a patient, or raising funds to help cover the co-payments for a transplant patient’s prescriptions or a crucial research breakthrough.
Join the thousands of Be The Match volunteers who give their time and talent so patients everywhere have hope for a cure.
