Honoring the memory, life, or generosity of a loved one is one of the most meaningful gifts a person can give.  

Marc Geman knew this when he set up a fundraiser in his wife’s name, Elin Robbins-Geman - a mentor at the American Transplant Foundation who passed away last year. She was a well-loved member of the Boulder community, who touched the lives of many through her work as an elementary school teacher and as a beloved wife, mother, and grandmother. Elin knew firsthand what the gift of organ donation means to a person, as her daughter’s husband donated his kidney to her in 2006, extending her life an additional sixteen years and allowing her to make countless more memories. In lieu of flowers, and to honor her legacy, the family asked those who knew her to make donations to the American Transplant Foundation. 

Celebrate the lives of the extraordinary people who touched your life by paying it forward. 

Change the life of a transplant recipient by making a donation to the American Transplant Foundation and notify your honoree or honoree’s loved ones with an e-card and personalized message. 100% of your donation goes toward our Patient Assistance Program, a critical program providing emergency financial assistance to transplant patients and living donors when they need it the most.
