At the American Transplant Foundation, we believe no one should die while waiting for a lifesaving transplant.


As a national 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, we strive to eliminate our country’s shortage of human transplant organs. Our supporters help the Foundation to raise awareness about organ donation, collaborate with other organ donation groups, and work toward better public policy


20 people will die today waiting for a life saving organ. Over 95% of Americans waiting for a lifesaving organ are in need of a kidney or liver – an organ that can be donated by a living person.
To save lives, we strive to create opportunities for people to become living donors. If just 1 out of every 2,000 Americans became living donors, we could eradicate the kidney and liver transplant waiting list. That is why we are here.


Our passion for helping patients through their transplant journeys drives our efforts to support living donors as they give the Gift of Life. We do this by eliminating financial concerns, eradicating educational gaps, and providing one-on-one transplant support.
