What We Do 

 

Our Life-Saving Mission

Our team members, volunteers and healthcare and community partners share a passion and commitment to saving and enhancing lives. We operate 24/7/365 to recover and place donated organs and tissue, support donor families, honor the legacy of those who gave the gift of life and raise awareness about the power of organ donation and transplantation.

We build a community of donation and transplantation

Compassionate Support

We are here for donor families  

We honor and support every family who makes the courageous decision to donate at the time of their loved one's passing. In their time of sorrow, these families gave the gift of life to others in need. While we cannot take away the pain of their loss, we strive to provide services that will promote healing during the difficult journey that lies ahead. 

Registering Donors

We work to build awareness for organ and tissue donation

Our dedicated team, volunteers and partners work together to raise awareness of organ and tissue donation to encourage community members to register as organ and tissue donors and save more lives.  

 

 

Healthcare Partnerships

We collaborate with an extensive network of healthcare partners to make donation happen 

By working with our local transplant centers, hospital partners, medical examiners and funeral directors, we realize our mutual goal of saving and enhancing lives through the identification, referral and care of potential organ and tissue donors.

Community Education

We help people make an informed decision about organ and donation

We provide educational programs and resources to healthcare professionals, faith leaders,  schools and corporate partners to increase awareness and knowledge about organ and tissue donation.

We facilitate organ donation, procurement and transplantation

Compassionate Recovery

We steward the gift of organ and tissue

We recover organs and tissue for transplant and coordinate the donation process according to federal regulations and with the utmost respect for patients and their loved ones. 

Our Laboratory

We save more lives through innovation and research

Our fully accredited transplant laboratory performs histocompatibility testing of organ donors and recipients. The laboratory also plays a critical role in the pre and post-transplant evaluation.
