Asian American Donor Program
Carol Gillespie’s career with the Asian American Donor Program (AADP) began as one of the first board of directors members back in 1989. Carol helped develop the outreach and development strategy for the nonprofit AADP organization. Through Carol’s leadership, the Asian American Donor Program became the first official Recruitment Group for the National Marrow Donor Program Registry, (now Be The Match) in 1990. In 1992, Carol accepted a full-time position with AADP as its Development Director and then accepted the Executive Director position in 2002. She is constantly looking for new innovative ways in which to reach the Asian American community in order to educate community members about the need for marrow/adult stem cell donation and the actual donation process to help save lives.
