The Donor Alliance Foundation believes that organ and tissue donation and transplantation are human gifts that save lives and that all those affected by donation deserve to be acknowledged, supported, and given access to resources that enable the gift of life.
To that end, the foundation welcomes applications for programs in Colorado and Wyoming that provide access to resources and education for those affected by organ and tissue donation and transplantation.
Grants of up to $25,000 will be awarded in support of efforts to provide family assistance to patients waiting for a transplant or who are post-transplant and their families, as well as living donors; assist service providers helping with transportation, food, housing, gas and other related expenses for families in need pre-, post- and during transplants; provide grief assistance and compassion support for donor families; offer new and innovative approaches to education about donation and transplantation through hospitals, government agencies, foundations, and related nonprofit community health-serving organizations; and conduct clinical and social research to further the donation and transplantation field.
The foundation will allocate more funding for Family Assistance grants in the 2020-21 cycle due to the needs caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
To be eligible, applicants must be located in and serve the people of Colorado and/or Wyoming; be tax exempt as defined by section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code or be a tax-supported institution such as a hospital, government or nonprofit organization; or have a formal fiscal sponsorship arrangement with a tax-exempt organization.
See the Donor Alliance Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
