Since 2011, the campaign and has generated more than 492,000 donor registrations.

Gift of Hope, the federally-designated organ recovery agency serving most of Illinois, invites all Illinois organizations, big and small, to join other Illinois Workplace Partners for Life.

Gift of Hope LogoDon’t miss the opportunity to be involved. Any organization in Illinois can become a Workplace Partner for Life and participate in Gift of Hope’s annual campaigns to expand awareness and help the 113,000+ people on the national organ transplant waiting list whose lives could benefit from the gift of organ, eye, and tissue donation.

Your organization can also earn recognition from HRSA and Gift of Hope for your participation.

Participation is easy – but will create meaningful employee engagement opportunities and have a tremendous impact on the lives of others in our community.
