Community Outreach

Since 1971, Gift of Life Michigan has honored life by connecting people who need vital organ and tissue transplants with donors.

The Community Spoke

And We Listened

Gift of Life is passionate about reaching out to multicultural communities - where people are more likely to need an organ transplant, yet less likely to sign up as organ donors - to address the shortage of organs for transplant, educate people about the need for organ donors, break down some of the common myths and misconceptions and encourage them to sign up on the organ donor registry.

We are partnering with healthcare professionals and community leaders to ensure information about organ donation is culturally sensitive and consistent with faith beliefs.

We need each other.

A single organ donor can save as many as eight lives. A tissue donor can help heal up to 75 others.
