The National Marrow Donor Program, a Local Organization with a Global Outlook

The National Marrow Donor Program® (NMDP) and the Be The Match Foundation® are nonprofit organizations located here in Northeast Minneapolis, dedicated to creating an opportunity for all patients to receive the bone marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant they need, when they need it. Every year, thousands of people of all ages are diagnosed with leukemia and other life-threatening diseases. Many of them will die unless they get a bone marrow or cord blood transplant from a matching donor. Seventy percent of people do not have a donor in their family and depend on our Be The Match Registry® to find a match to save their life.
The registry -- called the Be The Match Registry -- has grown to 9 million donors and more than 185,000 searchable umbilical cord blood units, the largest and most racially and ethnically diverse registry of its kind in the world.
Be The Match Foundation's work with families, corporations and other partners like you has raised millions of dollars for patients in need. With your support, Be The Match Foundation will continue to attract, engage and motivate people who want to save a life.
For more information on how you can join the registry, visit the information page through Be The Match here.
