about US

Our mission is to help the living kidney donors during recovery, raise awareness and promote living kidney and deceased organ donation.

There are approximately 117,000 men, women and children on the national transplant waiting list as of September 2021. About 83% on the list are waiting for kidney donors.

 

Potential kidney donors are sometimes hesitant to donate their kidney because of the expected monthly living expenses during recovery.  Full recovery takes time.  It may take 6 to 12 weeks or longer.

Kidney donors are making a difference! Giving someone a NEW LIFE! Why not help them during recovery?!

We assist kidney donors.  By helping them, we are reducing the number of people waiting for a kidney transplant.  Average wait time is 3 to 5 years!

 

Please support our mission.   

 

New Life Kidney Donor Assistance helps living kidney donors cover their expenses during recovery.  Kidney donors face escalating expenses following the surgery. State Short term disability is not always enough to cover their monthly expenses. During the three months recovery time, kidney donors must be able to pay for rent, mortgage payment, car insurance, car loan, cable, wifi, phone, electric, gas, heat and hot water bills. Other organizations cover transportation, traveling expenses or provide minimal grants. This may not be enough to cover all of their monthly cost. In some cases, kidney donor's recovery time could be longer than the time it takes for the kidney recipient to recover.

We are a non-profit organization registered with the IRS under Section IRC 501(c)(3).  All donations are tax deductible under IRC Section 170. Together, we can help the thousands of kidney patients and potential kidney donors.

 

We appreciate your help.  Thank you very much!
