The mission of the Georgia Transplant Foundation is to help meet the needs of organ transplant candidates, living donors, recipients and their families by providing information and education regarding organ transplantation, granting financial assistance and being an advocate for sustaining and enriching lives everyday.

About the Georgia Transplant Foundation

The Georgia Transplant Foundation (GTF) is unique in the national transplant community. Founded in August 1992 by Tommy Smith, a kidney transplant recipient, GTF is focused on providing both financial and educational assistance during a time that is often overwhelming for those undergoing or waiting for a transplant. Today, Georgia Transplant Foundation is the primary source for transplant patient assistance and support for all solid organ transplantation in the entire state of Georgia.

The Foundation board includes dedicated professionals from the five Georgia transplant centers and statewide organ recovery agency, community business leaders, transplant recipients and volunteers working together to improve the quality of life for those affected by transplantation.

GTF is a 501(c)(3) organization funded through the generosity of foundations like the Carlos and Marguerite Mason Trust, corporations and individuals. All funds raised go to support Georgia residents who are transplant candidates, recipients, living donors or their families. More than 85 cents on every dollar directly supports client services, including:

* Information
* Social services
* Support groups
* Financial planning
* Short-term financial assistance
* Help with fund-raising
* Navigation through insurance issues
* Educational conferences
* Job training and placement
