Mission Statement

The Katie Caples Foundation is committed to increasing the number of registered organ donors and reducing the wait for the more than 125,000 adults and children in need of a lifesaving organ transplant.

Description

The Katie Caples Foundation was founded by David and Susan Caples in the fall of 1998 after the death of their daughter Katie. Katie had just turned 17 and as a new driver she had recently made the decision to register as an organ donor. Her ultimate act of generosity saved the lives of 5 individuals (aged 9 to 62) and further enhanced the lives of several others. Since 2005 the Foundation has delivered the message of the impact of organ donation to more than 115,000 individuals in the northeast Florida area. Partnerships with Mayo Clinic, UF Health, DMVs and Tax Collectors’ offices have furthered the Foundation’s reach and in 2014 educational programming extended throughout 30 Florida counties.
