Important Things To Remember

  • 100% of funds raised are available for transplant-related expenses (including donor expenses or expenses incurred from other related diagnoses) for a lifetime – before, during and after the transplant!
  • COTA is the owner and administrator of all funds; transplant families are not taxed on these funds nor do these funds jeopardize other assistance program participation.

  • Each transplant family is unique! You may have a unique expense that might be transplant-related, but we need to know before we can help! Please keep in touch!
