Gift of Life Michigan is the state’s nonprofit, federally designated organ and tissue   donation program. Our diverse, collaborative team works to save and improve lives through donation every day.

Our employees work with hospitals and transplant centers across the state and nation to fulfill the wishes of donors and the hopes of people in need of these life-saving gifts. We are proud to have over 200 professionals on staff including people with expertise in medicine, science, quality, communications, IT, social services, logistics, finance, administration and more.

Workplace culture

This work is powerful and serious, joyful and inspiring – often in the same day. At Gift of Life Michigan, we support one another and we celebrate together. Our employees are passionate because they believe in – and witness firsthand – the impact organ and tissue donation can have.

Given the gravity of what we do, Gift of Life’s employees are supported above and beyond a generous benefits package, although we have that, too. We create organization-wide activities that build camaraderie and teamwork, honoring both the people we serve and each other. We believe in caring for our employees as much as we care for our work.

Our efforts have been recognized by Crain’s Detroit Business, which has honored Gift of Life as a "Cool Place to Work ."
