NMDP℠ invites you to play Matchmaker
You can Empower Individuals to Make a Difference
What it means to be an Ambassador
By definition, an ambassador is an official representative, a dedicated individual who educates while building strong relationships–that’s you! And we’ll equipt you with everything else you need. As an Ambassador, you’ll receive resources and support tailored for individuals, and access to a personal recruitment code and fundraising page, so you can track just how big of an impact you’re making.
Ambassadors make an impact
Every potential donor added to the registry and every dollar raised helps us continue our mission to save lives through cellular therapy. Working together, we make a big difference in our patients’ lives.
How you can do the most good as an Ambassador
You’re essential to what we do. Sign up as an Ambassador and we’ll come along side to provide support as you:
- Create awareness of NMDP℠ and your role in our collective mission.
- Recruit new members to the registry and to the cause.
- Raise $100 or more.
- Develop skills that will help you grow personally and professionally. We invest in you as you invest in others.

Letter of Recommendation
Upon successful evaluation, a representative will be happy to recommend you for future jobs or further education.
I signed up because I hoped to help someone like my mom—someone looking for a blood stem cell or bone marrow transplant, someone who I knew could have limited chances of finding a match. I remember what it felt like to wait for my mom’s doctor’s to find her a match and the feeling of joy we all had when they did. So I feel incredibly honored to participate in this process and give that feeling of hope back to the recipient and their family.MarandaBlood Stem Cell Donor
I remember being in class and getting the call saying that I was a potential match for someone who was fighting cancer. The decision to go through with the process wasn’t a hard one. Definitely do it if you have the chance, you are helping someone other than yourself.LexBlood Stem Cell Donor
