Donor Family Services
What to Expect
We’re in this with you, for as long as you need us
We’ll help you connect.
We’ll remember your loved one.
Our Family Services team is here to meet the unique needs of donor families in the hospital and after the death of their loved one. We answer questions and walk families through the donation process. We share information about the impact of your loved one’s decision to give the gifts of life.
For families who would like to continue to hear from us, we’ll send grief resources and other information in the year following the loss of a loved one. We can help donor families who wish to communicate with the recipients of their loved ones gifts and offer unique ways to remember and honor their heroes.
Honoring Our Heroes
Annual Donor Family Tribute
Every year, we gather (in person or online) to celebrate the life and gifts of our donor heroes. The program features stories from our families and from organ and tissue recipients. You can submit a photo and a tribute of your loved one to be included in this very special annual event.
Grieving and loss can be overwhelming; we’re here to help however we can
You are not alone. Grief is a very personal, and sometimes lonely, experience. We’ve collected some of our favorite resources about grief. Whether you like to read on your own or meet up with others for in-person support, you’ll find some suggestions on our Resources page.
Make a financial gift in memory of a donor
We’re always so touched when we receive a financial gift in memory of a donor. We use these generous contributions to support our mission to heal and save lives through organ and tissue donation. When you make a memorial gift, we’ll send a handwritten note to notify the family of your generous tribute gift. You can also organize an in-person or online fundraiser in memory of your loved one.
Sometimes you just need a little extra help; that’s why we’re here
