At the American Transplant Foundation, we believe no one should die while waiting for a lifesaving transplant. As a national 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, we strive to save lives by reducing the number of men, women and children awaiting a transplant. Our supporters help the Foundation raise awareness about organ donation, collaborate with other organ donation groups, and work toward better public policy. Our passion for helping patients through their transplant journeys drives our efforts to support living donors as they give the Gift of Life. We do this through our work to eliminate financial concerns, eradicating educational gaps, and providing one-on-one transplant support.
