Giving to Support the Next 50 Years of Transplantation Excellence
For more than 50 years, the UW Health Transplant Program
has been internationally renowned for its work to lead, improve and direct the future of transplantation. Consistently ranked among the nation’s busiest centers, our team has worked to save more than 13,000 lives through transplantation. We have imagined, created and developed new medications, technology, patient care systems and surgical techniques that altered the way people from Wisconsin and around the world experienced organ donation and transplantation. We are proud of our history, but we’re laser focused on creating the next 50 years. Our goals are clear and we’re ready to continue our reputation as those who direct the future of transplantation. Your help is needed. Thousands are waiting for us to be courageous. Let’s show them what we can do together.
The Hope, meet Gratitude Fund
When you donate to this fund, your gift will be used where it is needed most.
If you prefer, you may designate that your gift be used for a specific purpose. Our vision for the next 50 years requires support in these areas:
The Patient Care Fund
We must remove barriers to receiving care. We believe that by providing comprehensive, personalized care that supports every patient’s needs, they will live a long and healthy life. Your support will allow us to make it easier for patients to access care, provide better support for living organ donors and improve medication safety.
Organ Donation Education Fund
We believe that through education, we can register 75% of Wisconsin citizens as organ, tissue and eye donors by 2020, effectively eliminating the wait for transplant in Wisconsin. Your support will allow us to expand donation education messaging to reach every corner of the state to increase the percent of registered organ, tissue, and eye donors from 60 to 75 percent and eliminate the transplant waiting list in Wisconsin.
The Innovation through Research Fund
We believe that, through innovation, every patient can have one transplanted organ, and keep it for life. Your support will allow us to safely minimize medications, develop new tools to address antibody issues and identify unique ways to transplant every donated organ.
Faculty Endowment Fund
Our success relies heavily on recruiting and retaining the best and brightest faculty. So they can continue to lead, we must continuously invest in their future, while honoring their past contributions. Contact us for more information about giving to endowed faculty positions, (608) 308-5308.
