    • We help living donors to cover essential living expenses (i.e rent/mortgage) due to lost wages during recovery after surgery so they can heal without facing financial troubles.
    • For transplant recipients, we help patients to keep the organ that keeps them alive by providing assistance to cover delinquent insurance premiums to prevent loss of insurance coverage, medication co-payments during insurance gap periods, and/or changes to insurance provider. NEW: As of April 24th, we are offering Emergency Grants – please read the guidelines below.

    • Can help advise of local financial help

  7. Living Donor Grant
    • The Living Organ Donation Reimbursement Program funds the National Living Donor Assistance Center (NLDAC) to assist living organ donors. The NLDAC reimburses qualified living organ donors for expenses related to their evaluation, surgery, and follow-up visits. Qualified expenses include travel, housing, meals and incidentals, lost wages, and child-care and elder-care expenses.
