Participate / Community & Charitable Foundation Support

The Gift of Life Life Savers program has educated 400,000 high school students and their families about organ, eye, and tissue donation. The goal of the program is for students to make an informed decision and share their decision with a loved one. Because the conversation matters.

To date, the Transplant Mentors program has mentored over 740 patients from 26 states. The program assists transplant patients, family members, caregivers and living donors, as they begin the unknown journey of a transplant.

These programs are offered free of charge, therefore we depend on support from individuals, corporations, and charitable foundations.

Gift of Life greatly appreciates grants provided by the following charitable foundations:

  • Louetta M. Cowden Foundation, Bank of America, N.A., Trustee
  • Hall Family Foundation
  • Truman Heartland Community Foundation (

Community Partners pledge $5,000 or greater for at least three consecutive years. These generous contributors are elemental to sustaining the Gift of Life organization. We thank the following Community Partners for their generous support:
