Give to Gift of Life
There are many ways to support Gift of Life and its sister organizations, including making a charitable financial donation. Your contribution is greatly appreciated. It helps us save and heal lives and raise awareness for organ and tissue donation in the community.
The Transplant Foundation enhances our mission through services that support organ and tissue donor families and recipients. The foundation also collaborates with professional and community-based organizations to present educational programs, build partnerships and support education and outreach efforts. Its Grant Program funds innovative research in support of donation and transplantation.
GIFT OF LIFE FAMILY HOUSE
Gift of Life Family House, a nonprofit organization, serves as a “home away from home” by providing safe and comfortable lodging, home-cooked meals, transportation and an array of supportive services for families who must travel to Philadelphia’s world-class hospitals for life saving transplant care.
While the cost to operate a guest room and provide various complimentary services to guests is approximately $185 per night, the Family House only asks for a modest payment of $40 per family per night. Adopt-a-Family Program ensures that no family is turned away due to inability to pay.
Though the Family House receives some revenue from guest payments, we must turn to the larger community in order to fully fund the programs.
Camp Jeremy brings together children who have undergone a lifesaving transplant, and their siblings, for a week of fun and friendship.
The kids participate in a wide range of activities including swimming, arts & crafts, nature study, archery, athletics, music, games and more.
Camp Jeremy is offered free of charge, due to the generosity of the Clemens family and Lauren Parkin, camp director. Transplant recipients, and their brothers and sisters, from ages 5 to 16, are welcome to attend.
