Sponsor a Marrow Drive
You can continue to help by recruiting more people to join the registry. One of the easiest ways to help the Marrow Donor Program is to sponsor a marrow drive at your church, work place, school or organization. Sponsoring a drive is simple:
- Contact the Scott & White Marrow Donor Program by calling 888.724.2811 or emailing
- With the help of a Marrow Donor recruiter, choose a good location, date and time for your drive
- Spread the word about your drive by distributing flyers and talking to groups with your organization
Become a Financial Sponsor
We often have more people who are interested in joining the registry than we have funds available to tissue type them. Help those who spirits are willing but whose pocketbooks are not able by contributing to the Scott & White Marrow Donor Program. Your donation will be used to help these volunteers Be the Match.
For more information about how to make a donation, call 254.724.7000.
Volunteer at Our Special Events
We are always looking for people to help at drives, recognition events or other special events. Our biggest need for volunteers occurs during our annual Miracle Match Marathon, an event held each January in Waco. We also have periodic need for volunteers in our office.
