Welcome to our Foundation
We envision a day when organ and tissue donation is the cultural norm for everyone in Michigan, so that these life-saving, life-improving gifts get to the people who need them.
You can help us promote the cause of organ and tissue donation and transplantation in the community.
Through your monetary donations, we provide grants of financial assistance to transplant centers, post-transplant recipients and waiting candidates to help with their challenges and ensure transplant success. Your support also goes to funding public and professional education efforts. As good stewards, we manage our costs vigilantly, to increase resources that will support Gift of Life Michigan's mission.
How You Help
Assisting Transplant Recipients in Need
Your contributions allow the Gift of Life Foundation to give grants to transplant center social workers to offset the financial burdens transplant recipients have from the excessive costs of immunosuppressive medications. The burden for some of these recipients can cause them to lose everything, which puts the health of their treasured new organ in jeopardy.
Honoring Donors, Helping Families
You help us support our donor families with a variety of programming, from the time of donation to throughout their grief journey. That journey is unique to each donor family member, and our enhanced programming seeks to meet them where they are in the process and to give them the support they need.
Educating Our Community about Donation
Conducting Outreach, Growing the Donor Registry, Spreading the Mission
Your contributions help us support public education and outreach programming throughout Michigan. This translates into everything from efforts to increase donor registration numbers within minority communities to professional lectures and seminars that advance donation and transplantation.
