Some transplant patients approach public service organizations to help pay for the costs of transplantation. Civil service organizations are often willing to donate to help a patient get a life-saving surgery. Other patients opt to hold fundraising events, such as walk-a-thons, or appeal to their friends, family and fellow community members to help raise the money they need.
The financial coordinators at transplant centers may be able to provide help with locating organizations that can contribute to your fundraising efforts.
Some patients have great success with online fundraising, using websites like GiveForward.com to share their story and urgent need.
