Your Support Helps Save Lives
There are two ways to help the National Cord Blood Program – by donating cord blood and by making a financial gift to help defray the high cost of operating our stem cell bank.

Donate Cord Blood
You can donate your baby's cord blood if you will be delivering at one of our partner hospitals. Cord blood donations help us improve the chance that future stem cell transplant patients will find the match they need. Our program's goal is to collect and store up to 100,000 cord blood units from ethnically diverse donors.

Make a Financial Gift
Each cord blood unit costs us several thousand dollars to collect, test, process, store and ship to a patient. But to find a suitable match, we need to have many more units available than will ever be used in patients. So a single matched unit used in a stem cell transplant actually costs our program tens of thousands of dollars to produce and store.

Gifts of any size are immensely helpful, tax deductible to you, and will be used exclusively to help fund our operations and future patients in need. Contributions can be made online, by phone, or mail. We hope we can count on you to make a gift in support of our program's important work.
