Participate / Become a Volunteer
Gift of Life has many volunteer opportunities. We offer a trained speakers bureau of recipients, their families, donor families and living donors. Gift of Life also needs volunteer support from student and civic leaders who would like to bring the Life Savers program to their school or workplace.
Our Transplant Mentors are also active as trained volunteers who provide encouragement and support to new transplant recipients, living donors, those waiting for a transplant and their families.
Throughout the year volunteers are welcome to march with us in community parades, assist with fundraising and awareness events or lend a hand in the Gift of Life office. Don’t rule out simple ways to help, like taking cookies or visiting families waiting for a transplant who are visiting our community. There are a number of ways you can make a difference.

The Goodyear Award honored Nancy Post for her readiness and willingness to do anything that needs to be done at any time. Thank you to the over two hundred volunteers that gave their valuable time in 2016.
