Here are some of the ways your donations are used:
Outreach/Recruitment – Pay it Forward
AADP is faced with the challenge of finding and enrolling committed individuals into the Be the Match Registry. It is our goal to give the chance to register to everyone who is able and willing– especially in the minority community.
It is also our goal to eliminate any obstacles for these individuals to join. In past years, the cost to tissue type a donor has prohibited and discouraged some from joining the registry.
It costs $100 in administrative and lab fees to enter one donor into the Be the Match Registry. This cost is now paid for by a combination of donations from the community and a grant from HRSA. However, these funds are not inexhaustible. We need more help from the community and individuals like you to continue to make donor registration accessible to everyone.
For Fiscal Year 2011, AADP needs to raise at least $62,500 to help fund the registration costs. Your donation can help make sure that the cost to register is never an obstacle for anyone.
Education Materials & Retention Projects
Your donations go towards printing/publishing brochures, flyers, videos, and mailings that demonstrates both the importance and the ease of participation in the registry. Retention projects are ongoing throughout the year to help us keep donors in the registry and to increase the likelihood that donors will move forward should they be called as someone’s life-saving match. ($1,840/year)
AADP refreshes, changes, and updates its website to keep you interested, keep more people informed and to keep our services easily accessible and efficient. ($2,800/2 years)
