Funeral Service Professionals

FUNERAL SERVICE PROFESSIONALS

Our Partner Relations Liaisons work closely with funeral service professionals in Illinois and northwest Indiana to honor the decision to donate and return donors to loved ones after donation takes place. Together, we help save and enhance lives through organ and tissue donation.

Helpful Materials

Gift of Hope works closely with funeral service professionals in Illinois and northwest Indiana to honor the decision of organ, eye and tissue donors and their families.

We also provide helpful materials (flags, magnets, bracelets/pins for visitations) that can be used during funeral services to recognize and honor the selfless gift of donation.

Contact Partner Relations Liaison Chasity Dodd at cdodd@giftofhope.org for more information or to request materials.

Meet Our Funeral Director Advisory Council

The Gift of Hope Funeral Director Advisory Council serves the community by supporting Gift of Hope’s mission to save lives through organ and tissue donation. Council members and their funeral homes honor the wishes of families who donate the gifts of organ and tissue on behalf of their deceased loved ones.

The Council advises Gift of Hope on end-of-life matters related to funeral services and how to work in close collaboration with funeral care professionals. The Council also provides its perspective on procedures related to the care of organ and tissue donors and their families.

Gift of Hope looks to the Funeral Director Advisory Council for guidance in promoting donation awareness throughout the Funeral Home Community. We are happy to plan a meeting or education at your funeral home or in your community.

To learn more about donation or supporting families of organ and tissue donors, please contact one of the advisory council members or Partner Relations Liaison, Chasity Dodd at cdodd@giftofhope.org
