About Nevada Donor Network Foundation
Nevada Donor Network Foundation is a federally designated 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with the goal of developing a full-scale transplant institute to expand organ transplant capabilities in the state of Nevada. Founded in 2019, Nevada Donor Network Foundation was born from a dream to “End the Wait” for hundreds of Nevadans and thousands of Americans on the national organ transplant list by expanding Nevada’s current kidney transplant program and creating a new liver transplant program. Through Nevada Donor Network Foundation’s $35 million capital campaign to “End the Wait,” Nevada residents will no longer have to seek life-saving care in surrounding states; they will have the ability to be evaluated locally, transplanted locally and cared for locally. Nevada Donor Network Foundation works alongside Nevada Donor Network, whose state-wide efforts encourage Nevadans to register as organ, eye and tissue donors.
