As a nonprofit organization, serving the community is at the core of the UNOS mission. In keeping with this commitment, UNOS hosts several events each year. UNOS also participates in events, exhibits and presentations in our hometown and across the country. View our calendar of events >
Transplant Management Forum
Transplant administrators from across the country attend the UNOS Transplant Management Forum year after year for its educational sessions and networking opportunities. And while many of the sessions are geared to transplant administrators, it’s also an excellent opportunity for transplant professionals like clinical and financial coordinators, social workers, and physicians and surgeons to enhance their understanding of how a program operates.
National Tree of Life
The National Tree of Life virtual event is an opportunity to gather together to recognize the gift of organ, eye and tissue donation, to pay tribute to donors and their families, and to celebrate the lives of recipients across the country. We also hope this event may be a moment of solace for friends and families who are grieving, and for all who may experience a greater sense of loss during the holidays.
United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) and Donate Life America (DLA) invite you to join us for the National Tree of Life virtual event on December 16, 2021 at 5 p.m. EST. Learn more and RSVP for the event here.

Stories of Hope
Recognition of Donors - By State
Closing Song, The Gift
In years past, the program provided an opportunity for families to hang an ornament of their choosing on the Tree of Life in memory of their loved ones. Many of those ornaments can be seen here.
The Gallery at UNOS
Dedicated to increasing awareness of lifesaving organ transplants and organ donation, The Gallery at UNOS regularly features artwork by local artists and those directly touched by donation and transplantation. As guests are inspired by this artwork, they are also inspired by UNOS’ mission to save lives through increased organ donation and transplantation.
United for UNOS Annual Soirée
The last UNOS Soirée took place in October 2019. United for UNOS Annual Soirée was Richmond’s premier fall event and was uniquely held where our lifesaving mission is centered – UNOS headquarters. It was a time to satisfy appetites for food and philanthropy and to meet our Stories of Transplantation including transplant recipients, living donors, donor families and transplant professionals. Event proceeds supported United Network for Organ Sharing’s lifesaving work.
