Students save lives! Join the Gift of Life Donor Program College Challenge to make a difference in our community.

What is the College Challenge?

Gift of Life Donor Program encourages college clubs, organizations, and PRSSA Chapters across our region to help save lives by raising awareness and encouraging their campus communities to register as organ donors.

The College Challenge is an award-winning program and an exciting way for students to plan, promote, and execute virtual and grassroots campus outreach efforts aimed at registering new organ, tissue, and cornea donors. Participating student groups will keep track of their efforts and submit a scorecard for their chance at first, second, and third prizes, as well as a prize for the most newly registered donors.
