Transplant Village is a growing community of people who have been touched by organ donation. Made up of past organ donors, organ recipients, and their families, Transplant Village looks for ways to support the life-changing research and services offered by Northwestern Medicine's Comprehensive Transplant Center (CTC).
The Comprehensive Transplant Center is one of the most successful and largest organ donation centers in the country. To date, over 4,000 people have benefitted from the care of the CTC. Countless members of Transplant Village have received a new lease on life thanks to the tireless efforts of the Center’s physicians and staff. Transplant Village supports the CTC by reaching out to and connecting the transplant community as well as through philanthropic efforts.

Gift of Hope supports organ donation throughout the state of Illinois by giving residents a simple, free way to sign up as organ donors. Our team will be partnering with Gift of Hope over the coming year to encourage every Illinois resident to register their organ donation wishes.
Gift of Hope's secure system is a thorough registry of Illinois organ donors. Hospitals use this registry to verify whether or not a person would like their organs donated at the end of their life. If you would like to be an organ donor in Illinois, your wishes will not necessarily be carried out if your preferences have not been properly registered through Gift of Hope.
Help ensure that your end of life wishes are carried out the way you'd like by registering to be an organ donor through Gift of Hope today. The process takes only a few minutes and could save multiple lives.
If you are not an Illinois resident, you can sign up to be a donor through your own state's registry by vistiting Donate Life
