ABOUT

The Transplant Life Foundation, founded in 2011, is the nation’s leading advocacy nonprofit for those in the donation and transplantation world - transplant recipients, living donors, donor families, individuals on the waiting list, caregivers, transplant professionals and supporters. As a primary educational and social networking hub for the transplant community, organizing body for the Transplant Games of America and publisher of TransplantNATION magazine, Transplant Life Foundation strives each day to enhance and improve the lives of our members. At the Transplant Life Foundation, we work alongside the American Society of Transplantation, the American Society of Transplant Surgeons, Donate Life America, the 58 procurement organizations, and over 250 transplant centers located across the U.S.  Together we serve thousands of individuals within the transplant community, both national and international. 

Mission

After a decade of close communication with our partner organizations, recipients, donor families and living donors, the Transplant Life Foundation is even more committed to: 

  • Advocating for the transplant community and connecting recipients, donor families, living donors, future recipients, caregivers, transplant professionals, and supporters. 

  • Building awareness of the amazing medical advances in organ, eye, and tissue donation and transplantation. 

  • Highlighting the importance of organ, eye, and tissue donation. 

  • Encouraging every American adult to join the national and state donor registries. 

  • Publishing TransplantNATION magazine and other communications.

  • Producing, directing and executing the biennial Transplant Games of America. 

Vision

Our initiatives will help increase life-saving transplants as we actively work to increase the number of individuals on the National Donate Life Registry and local donor registries.  We will continue to develop programs and services, establish partnerships for education and awareness, and bring the transplant community together, to reinforce the overwhelming need for donation and transplantation.
