Becoming a partner

Across the country hundreds of organizations, associations, companies, communities and schools have joined our Partners for Life program. Our program offers teams the opportunity to raise awareness, book group donations, host a donation event, and/or set an annual donation pledge. Our partners give blood, volunteer time and/or become stem cell registrants. Learn how you can get involved below.

Partner FAQs


How do I register to become a partner?

Register your organization in four easy steps.   

  1. Complete the partner registration form online. 
  2. After you submit your form, one of our representatives will be in touch with you to get your team started. We will help determine the best way for your organization to get involved. We do encourage our corporate and government partners, when possible, to allow employees to donate during business hours. Having that type of support will go a long way to ensuring your team’s success. 
  3. If you set an annual pledge, be sure to communicate your goals to your employees, members and/or stakeholders.  
  4. Ask us for help. We are here to provide support and make it easy for our partners! 
My organization has committed to annual pledge. How I do I join my organization’s team?

If your organization is registered for an annual donation pledge, your team’s champion will provide you with your partner ID by email. If you didn’t receive a partner ID or don’t know who your champion is, you can contact us directly at to request your partner ID. 

Note that you only need to register if your organization sets an annual goal and you want to count your donations towards that goal. Not all partners set an annual pledge.

I have my partner ID. What next?
