Welcome to The Donor Alliance Foundation, where we believe that organ and tissue donation and transplantation are human gifts that save lives and that all those affected by donation deserve to be acknowledged, supported and given access to resources that enable the gift of life. The Foundation funds efforts in Colorado and Wyoming that provide access to resources and education for those affected by organ and tissue donation and transplantation. We also support living donors and their families.

In 2024, we will focus on community impact by addressing system barriers that prohibit people from receiving an organ and/or tissue transplant. We will do this by providing equitable and equal access to donation and transplantation resources through funding in three program areas: education, family assistance and research, for a total of $200,000 in available grant funds.

We want to understand how your project will meet the needs of vulnerable populations. Does it demonstrate how it will address Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) in its scope? It is The Foundation’s goal for everyone in Colorado and Wyoming to have equal and equitable access to donation and transplantation resources that enable the gift of life.

The Donor Alliance Foundation’s sixth funding cycle will open on Monday, June 5!

The Foundation was created in December 1993 as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) and re-established in August 2017, to operate exclusively for charitable, scientific and educational purposes. The Foundation is a supporting foundation to Donor Alliance, the federally designated nonprofit organization that facilitates organ and tissue donation in Colorado and most of Wyoming. Donor Alliance invests significantly in public education in Colorado and Wyoming and the foundation will build upon those efforts through grantmaking to in-need populations across Colorado and Wyoming.

Our mission is to build partnerships and break down barriers to influence change that will positively affect the donation and transplant community. Our vision is to ensure those affected by organ and tissue donation are acknowledged, supported and given access to resources that enable the gift of life.
