Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

We work to to increase their odds of receiving a marrow transplant for people suffering from blood borne cancer and blood borne illnesses by hosting marrow drives nationwide.

Through our Get On The List Campaign we register event attendees at concerts and festivals nationwide to the International Bone Marrow Registry.

We host over 1000 drives per year to increase the participants in the marrow registry.

As we process all registrations in house we are able to track exactly how many new registrants we find.

As of this writing (4/11/18) we have registered over 170,000 people to the marrow registry which has resulted in over 3,500 potentially life-saving matches.
