Your willingness to fundraise means you’re joining the fight to help patients in need of a transplant.

Fundraising helps:

  • Improve a patient’s chance of having a match on the Be The Match Registry®
  • Provide grants to cover uninsured costs for patients and their families
  • Ensure life-saving research continues to improve transplant outcomes

Raise $150 as an individual and receive a Be The Match® travel blanket.

By raising $150, you’ll be eligible to receive this Be The Match travel blanket. This fundraising gift does not apply to team fundraising so to earn it, please fundraise on your personal page. (The funds you raise personally DO apply to the overall team goal.)

Gifts will be available for pick up at the event. You will be notified by email when you hit $150. Incentive program deadline for raising $150 for this gift is on the Friday before the event at 5:00 p.m. EST. Additional gifts may be available for funds turned in at the event while supplies last, but there is no guarantee.

The deadline for raising $5,000 and receiving a team tent is on the Friday one week prior to the event.

Participant and Team Recognition

Be The Match fundraising achievement badges are fun icons that appear on your Personal and Team pages as you reach specific fundraising milestones, or when you make a personal gift to your own efforts. Each badge is a virtual “high five” from Be The Match that is perfect to share on social accounts like Facebook, Instagram or LinkedIn.
