WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT and you can help us in a number of ways…

The GOLD - The Gift of Living Donation - Support Living Donation1. JOIN OUR RANKS - Please join us by enrolling your interest with us. Our intention is to build a base of supporters.  We need to show potential major funders that there is a broad, national interest which supports our efforts to make a cultural change to the health of our communities, from local to national.  

Please enroll with us to show support by completing the form below. You will also be updated on major news in our efforts.

We would especially like to hear from you if you are a Living Donor!

The GOLD - The Gift of Living Donation - Financial Donation2. FINANCIAL DONATIONS, BUT NOT YET! – Simply put, until we have secured our start-up funding, we cannot effectively manage individual solicitations. Presently, our core volunteer staff is busy talking to funding sources to secure necessary start-up funds. However, PLEASE

Please use the enrollment form below.

4. YOUR PICTURES – As with the stories, we want Donor/Recipient photos. We plan to rotate these periodically. Please identify the parties by name, who is donor/recipient, ages (optional) , the town and state of where the transplant incurred.
