Financial contributions
help save lives

Registering one potential bone marrow donor costs DKMS $65. Most of the expense is for processing the donor's tissue type. Because DKMS does not require new donors to cover this expense, and does not receive government funding, it must rely on donations from the general public to fund donor registrations. 100% of your contribution is used to register new potential donors so more lives can be saved.

Every dollar counts!

When DKMS began, our most urgent goal was to register potential bone marrow donors for patients in need of lifesaving transplants. With our success came the need for funding. Fundraising is critical to the success of DKMS and is the main objective of our annual gala, the Delete Blood Cancer Gala. But the Gala is more than a fundraising event. The Gala provides the opportunity for DKMS to create awareness for its cause and showcase the importance of bone marrow donation. One Gala program highlight is the “Moment of the Match,” when a blood cancer survivor is introduced, for the first time, to the donor who saved his/her life. This is an indescribably emotional moment that emphasizes why our lifesaving work is so important. 



Working closely with our key corporate sponsor, Coty Inc., DKMS organizes a lavish, star-studded event with an impressive line-up of guests, and entertainment. The funds, jointly raised at the Gala by Coty Inc. and DKMS, will help register bone marrow donors and save lives worldwide. The celebrities who attend the event attract media attention to our cause and help us spread the word. Hopefully, each person who attends the Gala will be moved to become a donor and an advocate for DKMS as well.

The success of our annual Gala is critical to the success of our cause.
