DKMS Donor Club

The DKMS donor club has been in existence since 2002. Each member of the donor club – currently over 7,000 – has already donated stem cells and thus given a patient a new chance at life. If you have donated stem cells, we will automatically ask you whether you would like to become a member of the donor club four weeks after your donation.

Members of the donor club support us with informative lectures, talk to people at information booths, or make themselves available for interviews with their local media. On average, 90 new club members are added each month with their personal donor stories, which motivate many more people to register as donors with DKMS every day. These stories motivate a lot of people every day to register as donors with DKMS.

We are happy to help you if you have any questions regarding the donor club. Your contact partner, Mareike Kalupke, will be happy to hear from you!


Increase the chances at life for patients

Organize a donor drive

As an individual, group or family member of a patient, you can help us register even more potential life-savers. Immediately after the donor drive, you can learn how many new donors we were able to add to our donor registry with your help and how many registrations from other donors you were able to support with your monetary donation. The success of your donor drive can be traced directly by you and all participants. DKMS is standing by your side every step of the way. Simply send us an e-mail with the most important information about you and your plans. We will get in touch with you and discuss the next steps.

Donor drive

Give members the opportunity to register as donors and potentially save a life soon.

Fundraising campaign

Collect monetary donations for the registration of new donors. Adding new donors costs €40 in laboratory fees. As a charitable organization, we are therefore dependent on your monetary donations.


Send us an inquiry

We will send you our guide for local community groups, which contains information about the individual measures for planning and carrying out a joint donor drive. We will then guide you every step of the way.

Preparation and promotion

We provide you with online and print ads for your donor drive. You can customize these and use them to publicize your donor drive.

During and after the donor drive

We are at your side with advice and assistance. Together we can save even more lives!
