Jefferson Transplant Institute

Every 10 minutes, someone is added to the national list of the more than 120,000 patients waiting for an organ transplant. At Jefferson, we’re constantly innovating, creating new treatment options, and working to save more lives and improve the quality of life for transplant patients and their families. One way to achieve this is by building a more robust living donor kidney transplant program.

As part of our overall vision to reimagine our transplant programs, we have launched a fundraising campaign to garner support for the new Jefferson Nicoletti Kidney Transplant Center. Philanthropy will turn our vision for the Jefferson Transplant Institute into a reality for patients looking for hope and a new lease on life. 

Campaign for a World-Class Living Donor Kidney Transplant Program

We go above and beyond. Let’s go even further.

Give someone a new lease on life.

From the President & CEO

Dr. Klasko

An Unprecedented Urgency — and Opportunity

“We know living donor kidney transplants give patients the best chance at a new lease on life. Our transplant team is the best in the region and rates among the nation’s finest. We also know that the best way to expand our program, and thereby help even more people, is through philanthropy.

You can help us save more lives. An investment in Jefferson will give more patients and their families the second chance that they deserve at a longer, healthier and happier life.”
