Why does my gift matter?

Your giving saves lives. Currently, more than 100,000 people are waiting for an organ transplant in the United States. Every day, there are an average of 117 lifesaving organ transplants. Unfortunately, on that same day, 17 people will die before their match is made. Your support funds initiatives to close this gap, getting us closer to our vision of a lifesaving transplant for everyone in need.

What does my support do?

Your gift to UNOS invests in solutions to save more lives by making our nation’s transplant system more equitable and effective. These solutions reduce patient wait time, enhance recipient quality of life, and increase the number of transplants for the thousands of children and adults with end-stage organ failure on the waiting list.

Charitable gifts support the National Donor Memorial, and Transplant Living — free educational materials provided to patients and their families to help them navigate the complexities of transplant.
