Who We Serve

Hughes Brothers2

OUR DONORS
Our team works with the hospital care team to care for our donors. Together, we can ensure the organs are nursed back from trauma and are healthy enough for transplant.

Roberts Family2

OUR FAMILIES
We guide families through the pain, support them as they honor their loved one's wishes, and help them find healing. All donor families are invited to be part of our Bridge to Healing program.

OUR PARTNERS
Hospitals, funeral homes, hospice, medical examiners – each donation partner is vital to our work. We work with each of them to support and educate them about their role in the donation process.

OUR COMMUNITIES
Donation starts with a “yes.” Our goal is to inspire community members to sign up as donors, and give hope to the 105,000 people in the US waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant.
