For more than 26 years, the LifeLink Legacy Fund has contributed over $1.5 million in fulfillment of its mission to support LifeLink Foundation. Its primary efforts serve to relieve pre- and post- transplant patients of short-term financial burdens. The Legacy Fund also provides grants for transplant research as well as community programs and initiatives for organ donation and transplantation. Currently, the LifeLink Legacy Fund is privileged to contribute to hundreds of patients at transplant centers across Florida and Georgia, with hopes to reach more patients in 2016.
Donate Life Florida is the statewide alliance of organ, tissue and eye recovery programs in Florida, as well as other interested parties, and is tasked by the state of Florida with overseeing the Joshua Abbott Organ and Tissue Donor Registry. Florida’s donor registry allows Floridians to express their legally binding decision to save lives as an organ and tissue donor, and is funded through contributions made to the state specifically for that purpose and by Donate Life Florida members. Support of Florida’s organ, tissue and eye donor registry enhances donation education in Florida, and expands opportunities for Floridians to join the registry when they get or renew their driver license or state identification card, or by visiting the registry online at www.DonateLifeFlorida.org.
