The Moore family makes good go a long way with historic $5 million gift

Twelve years ago, the Moore family experienced our mission firsthand when their loved one received a life-saving blood stem cell transplant facilitated by NMDPSM. Since then, the family has been an unbelievably dedicated supporter of our life-saving mission.

A history of life-saving philanthropy

Inspired by the second chance at life their family member received, the Moores began volunteering and hosting registry donor recruitment events. Fundraising through their own personal network, they continued to raise awareness of NMDP’s mission.

Over more than a decade, the family's support has only continued to grow as they've witnessed the power of philanthropy on patient lives. They've continuously invested in advancing transplant science through the NMDP Amy Strelzer Manasevit Research Program and the groundbreaking NMDP Donor For All research initiative. And, seeing personally the challenges patients and families can face on their journey to transplant, the Moores have consistently supported NMDP patient financial assistance programs that remove barriers and instill hope.

Now, we are incredibly grateful to share the news of the Moore family’s latest momentous gift of $5 million—the largest contribution in our history.

Good goes a long way

With the Moores’ contribution to NMDP, good goes a long way. Their extraordinarily generous gift establishes the NMDP Moore Family Center for the Advancement of Research and Patient Experience at the NMDP World Headquarters in Minneapolis. This initiative supports ongoing donor recruitment, funds patient assistance so families can overcome financial barriers to transplant and advances the NMDP Amy Strelzer Manasevit Research Program to improve transplant outcomes.

"The Moore family’s transformational gift continues accelerating progress and expanding access so more patients can receive their life-saving cell therapy,” said Joy King, chief advancement officer, NMDP. “We’re beyond grateful for more than a decade of partnership with this special family who is personally dedicated to ensuring more patients and families receive the same tremendous gift they did—more time together as a family."

NMDP is a nonprofit and relies on the support of our community and philanthropy is critical to advance our mission. To discover how you can truly transform the lives of patients and their families through philanthropic support, please contact Daniel Lee at
