The American Legion

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about the Children’s Organ Transplant Association (COTA) and The American Legion Family’s support of COTA and our families.

For more than 30 years, The American Legion, The American Legion Auxiliary, The Sons of the American Legion and The American Legion Riders have raised more than $1.7 million to help COTA kids. The American Legion Family helps transplant families across the country to help ensure that no child, teen or young adult is denied a life-saving transplant due to a financial barrier.

On this page, you will find a number of COTA resources including fundraising ideas, templates, and a supply order form. We encourage you to take a moment to review these materials. Please contact us at with questions, to request a speaker or for additional information about how you can help. You can use the ‘Find a Family’ search bar to locate a COTA family in your community.

Thank you for your service … and thank you for your generous and faithful support of COTA’s life-saving work!
