You Make the Difference

Every 10 minutes, someone is added to the national list of more than 113,000 patients currently waiting for an organ transplant. As the need for life-saving organs continues to grow, more patients than ever are suffering from a diminished quality of life while they wait for an organ transplant that may never come.

As such, the need for philanthropic support of our comprehensive transplant program has never been more acute. An investment in the Jefferson Transplant Institute is an investment in our patients, giving more individuals the opportunity to live longer, healthier, and happier lives.
