Our programs:

GenCure Bereavement Program

Your donations help the GenCure Bereavement Program hold community events and provide educational resources for anyone who has suffered the loss of a loved one and for families of those who have selflessly made the decision to donate tissue. Programs include grief seminars and public awareness events honoring tissue donors.
 
GenCure Marrow Donor Program
Your donations help the GenCure Marrow Donor Program coordinate marrow donor recruitment, registration, donation and collection of peripheral blood stem cells from adult donors. These funds help potential donors respond when they are matched to a patient needing a transplant and are called to donate. 
 
GenCure Tissue Program
Your donations help GenCure provide tissue recovery from selfless donors and their families who decide to donate tissue. Funds support tissue processing and manufacturing of tissue allografts for hospitals and clinics to help patients who are ill or injured and need tissue transplants.
 
Marrow Ambassadors Golf Tournament
Net proceeds support human leukocyte antigen (HLA) typing and testing for patient families, local businesses and organizations hosting marrow registration drives. In 2014, the tournament celebrated its 20th year of helping bring together donors and patients in need.
 
Red and White Ball 
The annual Red and White Ball, The Blood & Tissue Foundation’s marquee fundraising event, raises tens of thousands of dollars for Foundation programs, services and equipment needs that support the lifesaving mission of BioBridge Global and its subsidiaries. The elegant evening that includes dinner, music, dancing, auctions and raffles takes place each fall.
