YOUR SUPPORT HELPS SAVE LIVES
There are two ways to help the New York
Blood Center's National Cord Blood Program: by donating cord blood
and by contributing money to help cover the costs of donation.
You can donate your
baby's cord blood if you deliver at one of our collaborating hospitals
(See Collection Sites). Cord blood donations help us improve the chances that future stem cell
transplant candidates will find the cord blood match they need. Our program
goal is to collect 100,000 cord blood units from ethnically
diverse donors over the next five years.
Most general questions about public cord blood donation are answered in cord blood donation. Use contact us to ask a specific question about public cord blood donation.
Financial contributions also help. Each
cord blood unit costs more than $2,200 to collect, test, process and
store. But to find a suitable match, we need many more units available
than will ever be transplanted. Thus, a single matched unit used in a transplant
actually costs thousands of dollars. A gift of $2,200 would help to cover the cost of adding one cord blood unit to the NCBP inventory. A gift of $35,000 would cover the cost of one matching cord blood used for an actual transplant, but any donation would be gratefully accepted for this purpose.
To make a financial contribution, please print out and mail the "Contribution Form" of this webpage to the NCBP at the address at the bottom of this page. Or to make a contribution online, please go to https://support.nybloodcenter.org/cordblood.
If you have questions about making
a contribution, or for further information regarding a
gift, bequest or trust, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone at 212-570-3454.
