I have worked with gift of life for over a year and they are such an amazing organization! Everyone at the foundation is so impressive and their dedication to the cause is inspiring!
They have implemented innovative ways to increase the size, diversity, and funding for the bone marrow registry such as Speed Swabbing and the Campus Ambassador Program, as well as increasing the PR and media attention surrounding the importance of the bone marrow registry. They also work hard to make all of their volunteers feel very appreciated and special and are there every step of the way for donors and recipients for which they facilitate transplants.
The work they do truly saves lives!
I feel so grateful to be a part of the foundation!

I am so honored to be a part of the Gift of Life family. My cousin Brian is alive today because he received a life saving donation 12 years ago. My other cousin Jonathan was fortunate to be called as a donor a few years ago. I am lucky to be able to volunteer with this amazing organization. I enjoy being part of the events they organize and working alongside such an amazing group. The staff at Gift of Life are the most amazing and generous individuals I have ever met. They work tirelessly for this cause. I am truly honored to call them family. My hope is to be called as a donor so I can experience giving the Gift of Life to someone in need.

Gift of Life is the most impressive nonprofit organization I have ever encountered! As a physician I have encountered the hope and miracles that bone marrow transplants provide for those in need, and there is no greater organization than Gift of Life that could provide such. The employees are so pleasant to work with, inspiring and motivational. They are organized, productive, and masters of fundraising. They are truly a nonprofit to emulate!

I would not be alive if it were not for gift of life. My stem cell transplant donor came through gift of life's efforts to reach out to young people and ask them to swab their cheek and put their DNA in the national database.
I received a stem cell transplant two years ago. I am eternally grateful to the good work that gift of life does on behalf of those of us who would not survive without this life-saving treatment.

After matching and donating through Gift of Life registry, I've continued to stay involved with this great organization for the last 4 years. Everyone at GOL has been great to work with and I've enjoyed volunteering in the tri-state area. Between walks, networking events, swabbing drives, and fundraisers, they are a world-class organization that truly believes in their cause and strives to match as many donors to recipients as possible.

A really dedicated group of people. Gift of Life has a great strategy and comes through with real, life-saving results. Being a volunteer turned employee, I have seen the foundation run at all levels, and they are all about doing everything they can to help make a real difference for people suffering from terrible diseases.
