Donor Family Support Program

Supporting Organ Donor Families
in their Time of Need

The Donor Family Support program was established to provide financial assistance to individuals and families touched by organ donation. Assisting with needs such as burial expenses, utilities, rent, and more, Taylor’s Gift Foundation works to help those who are facing immediate need.

By partnering with Organ Procurement Organizations (OPOs) that include the Arkansas Regional Organ Recovery Agency (ARORA), Southwest Transplant Alliance (STA), LiveOnNY, Texas Organ Sharing Alliance (TOSA),  and LifeGift, Taylor’s Gift is able to work hand in hand with these partners to fulfill the immediate needs of organ donor families.

Help us ensure the organ donor’s families are supported.

Where We Work

LifeGift serves a population of 10 million people in the state of Texas.
Southwest Transplant Alliance (STA) serves a population of 7.3 million in the state of Texas.
Arkansas Regional Organ Recovery Agency (ARORA) serves a population of 2.5 million in the state of Arkansas.
LiveOnNY serves a population of 13 million people in the greater New York metropolitan area.
Texas Organ Sharing Alliance serves more than 7 million people in 56 Central and South Texas counties.

ARORA’s purpose is to restore lives. The restoration of life happens not only at transplantation but the generosity to give life to another can be restorative in the midst of an unexpected and tragic loss. In our support of donor families, we are grateful to partner with Taylor’s Gift in assisting families in a continuum of care in ways we are not able.

Alan Cochran President and Executive Director of ARORA

LifeGift is pleased to work with Taylor’s Gift Foundation in an effort to offer more hope to families who have experienced the loss of a loved one and donated lifesaving organs and tissue for transplantation. The Foundation helps donor families in difficult situations after the donation has occurred, specifically with resolving financial burdens after experiencing a traumatic loss.

Kevin MyerPresident and CEO of LifeGift

Organ donation is not only about those who receive, it is very much about those who give and the families of those who give. We commend Taylor’s Gift for their vision to support donor families in a meaningful way that the NYODN and other organ recovery organizations are unable to provide.

Helen IrvingPresident and CEO of LiveOnNY

STA helps families through the emotional and logistical process of donating a loved one’s organs, but, like all OPOs, we are prevented by law from providing direct financial assistance. Donor Family Support grants through Taylor’s Gift Foundation often help donor families in important ways that STA can’t.

Patricia Niles President and CEO of STA

Texas Organ Sharing Alliance is on a mission to save lives through the power of organ donation, and none of it is possible without the generosity of our donors and their families. While we support our families in many ways, we are not permitted to provide them with financial assistance. Now through our partnership with Taylor’s Gift, we will be able to direct our precious donor families to a means to receive that support.
