Gift of Life Michigan is a non-profit, full-service organ and tissue recovery organization for the state. Established in 1971, Gift of Life acts as an intermediary between donor hospitals and recipient transplant centers. Gift of Life employs nearly 200 people and provides all services necessary for organ and tissue donation to occur.
Gift of Life Michigan’s employees are passionate about their work, because they believe in – and witness firsthand – the impact organ and tissue donation can have in saving and improving lives. When our employees talk about Gift of Life’s tagline, “the power to heal lives,” they know this applies both to the recipients of these gifts and to the donor families whose loved ones have left a legacy of generosity.
Given the gravity of the work, Gift of Life provides its employees with ample support, both in a generous benefits package and through organization-wide activities that build camaraderie and teamwork. These efforts have been recognized by Crain’s Detroit Business, which honored the organization in 2015 as a "Cool Place to Work."
