Your contributions to the Children’s Organ Transplant Association are used to assist the organization in our mission to help children and young adults who need or have had a life-saving transplant. Contributions are made with the understanding that COTA has complete control and administration over the use of the donated funds. COTA allocates funds raised in honor of patients to families who have a documented financial need directly related to the transplant.
COTA is the nation’s only fundraising organization solely dedicated to raising life-saving dollars in honor of transplant-needy children and young adults. 100% of each contribution made to COTA in honor of our patients helps meet transplant-related expenses. COTA’s services are free to our families, and gifts to COTA are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
The goal thermometer graphic on online donation pages showing the amount raised in honor of each COTA patient is an approximate total of gifts made to the Children’s Organ Transplant Association in honor of that patient. The total may not immediately reflect all contributions. COTA’s priority is to raise funds in honor of families that would not otherwise be available to help meet transplant-related expenses.
