Resources for Living Donation

The National Kidney Foundation is a great resource to start with. I have been partnering with them for some advocacy work and public speaking since moving to Denver last year.


UW Health – Transplant Center in Madison, Wisconsin

I can’t say enough good things about my experience with UW. They were responsive, compassionate, and incredibly warm during the entire process.

The DonorPlus App has been created by a living donor to support other living donors. Although it’s at an early stage, I’m looking forward to seeing new features as they are released throughout the year.


Donor to Donor is a non-profit 510(c)(3) foundation devoted to raising awareness of kidney disease and promoting living kidney donation.

Ned Brooks (the founder of Donor to Donor) did an incredible Ted Talk on kidney donation.


Living Donor Match provides potential living organ donors with education, support, and a place to connect with your match.


My dear friend Patty Graham did an Ignite talk in Boulder earlier this year about her kidney donation. (She also donated to a stranger!)


The National Kidney Registry is also a great resource. If you are curious about starting a chain, or paired donation, this is a great place to start.
