HOSA hits $500,000 milestone for Be The Match®

Five of the top HOSA chapters at Be The Match's Coordinating Center

How do you recruit thousands of potential life-saving donors and raise half a million dollars in three years? By enlisting the power of bright compassionate students. In other words, you forge a life-saving partnership with HOSA-Future Health Professionals.

HOSA is a global student-led organization with a mission to empower future health professionals to become leaders in the global health community through education, collaboration and experience.

In June 2020, Be The Match® was elected HOSA’s Premier Service Project Partner. Since then, thousands of student chapters across the country have been supporting our life-saving mission by raising awareness, fundraising, and recruiting new potential donors to the registry and pre-registry.

Because of its remarkable impact with generous contributions of time, creativity and talent, HOSA was the deserving recipient of our Grow Award at The ONE Forum® 2021, an industry conference presented by Be The Match. And in September 2022, we were honored to host five of our top high school HOSA chapters at the Be The Match Coordinating Center in Minneapolis.

“Be The Match is beyond grateful for our partnership with HOSA,” said Joy King, Executive Director, Be The Match Foundation®. “To date, this incredible organization has raised an astounding $500,000 and counting. And not only have the student chapters been fantastic fundraisers, they’re also some of the best cheek swabbers on the planet!  HOSA chapters have added over 4,300 new members to the Be The Match Registry® and over 1,200 new members to the pre-registry. We look forward to continuing this life-saving work together in years to come.”
