OUR TECH: PROJECTS THAT SAVE LIVES

Give & Live BECOME A LIVING DONOR

Give & Live is a collaboration between ORGANIZE, University of Chicago Medicine, and Microsoft to create a centralized, anonymous, non-directed living donor database. Our goal is to provide world-leading information about living donation to individuals interested in opportunities for live donation while enabling transplant centers to find better matches, to orchestrate longer kidney chains, and to start, one day, a first ever liver chain. Give & Live was launched at the White House Organ Donation Summit in June 2016.

Project partners include Fahrenheit 212 and University of Chicago Medicine

DONOR MEET YOUR MATCH

DONOR is a tool that we built with Facebook that helps patients find their potential living kidney or liver donors. DONOR was announced at the White House Organ Donation Summit in 2016 and, in early 2017, received a $1MM grant from the National Institutes of Health. Initial testing at Johns Hopkins University found that patients who used DONOR were six times more likely to find a match than those who didn’t. We are testing DONOR across various centers and hope to unroll it nationally later this year.

Our project partner on Donor is John’s Hopkins

Social Declarations TELL YOUR FAM

ORGANIZE created the concept of a social declaration, which refers to statements made on social media that indicate your intent to be an organ donor. These posts often include a relevant hashtag like “I want to be an #OrganDonor” and are a helpful way to start the conversation about donation with your family.

53 AMERICA’S FIRST CENTRAL REGISTRY

ORGANIZE built the country’s very first central registry to ensure that registrations can be found anywhere in the country. We’ve partnered with Donate Life America and now send all registrations directly to their national registry so every organ procurement organization can access them.

Project partners include Donate Life America and DMV.org

Organize international

On September 24 we partnered with David Foster Foundation (DFF) and Transplant Manitoba to bring social declarations to Canada. We launched at the DFF Gala, headlined by Sinbad. Together with these new partners, we are taking our mission to modernize organ donation to the global stage.
