In brief: No effect

Bone marrow donation requires only a small amount of the center of the bone so that there is no clinical effect on the density.

In brief: The central cavity..

Of bone, where the marrow is found, is distinct from the mineralized structural bone that most are familiar with.
The extraction of marrow, from a donor, even significant quantities that would be used for donation in a stem cell transplant for an adult recipient, have no impact on bone mineral density. Donate away!
