About The Living Bank

The Living Bank welcomes your media inquiries. We appreciate your efforts to help us educate the public on living organ donation and transplant.

The Living Bank made history in 1968 as the nation’s first organ donor registry. Today our program focus is living organ donation.

The lack of organ donors is a national medical crisis. Due to the increase in kidney and liver disease, the demand for organs has exceeded the supply. Thousands of people die needlessly each year due to the lack of organ donors. The Living Bank made history in 1968 as the nation’s first organ donor registry.

Our mission is raising awareness of the critical need for organ transplant donors through public education and advocating for donors and their families.
