Why is DKMS-BMST asking for monetary donations?

Our goal is to recruit many more potential blood stem cell donors to expand our database and give every patient battling blood cancer and other blood-related diseases a second chance at life. We do not ask our potential donors for money as we believe expanding the database and supporting patients should be our priority.

However, the entire process of donor registration, kit shipment, HLA typing, finding a matching donor and facilitating the transplant procedure involves expenses that has to be covered by the organization and this where we depend on monetary donations.

As a non-profit organisation, we have made it our mission to provide continuing support to patients. This can only be financed through donations.

There are many ways to get involved and support our mission.
You could be raising awareness, join the registry, hosting your own event, taking on a fundraising challenge, or anything in between.
