Our mission is to help families and children master the lifelong challenges associated with pediatric organ transplantation . Help us do more than ever before in 2019.
Anyone can be an Organ Donor Ambassador. Whether you are a registered organ donor, transplant recipient, donor family member or you know someone who has received a lifesaving transplant, your passion about organ transplantation and commitment to sharing your experience is the foundation of being an Organ Donor Ambassador.
One of the best ways those touched by pediatric transplant can have an impact on others facing the same challenging journey is by giving back to the Transplants for Children. TFC offers a wide range of giving opportunities that allow people to honor special occasions or remember a donor, doctor or child. Participate in a special event to Leave a Legacy through a planned gift.
Every day, dedicated volunteers help us connect, inspire and support the families and children we serve. Work with our team to help families in crisis, have fun at one of our Family Connect meetings or special events. Give time to our PACT Support events or the many STARS Scholarship workshops. If you have a passion to support children on their personal transplant journey - we have meaningful opportunities for you to volunteer.
If you have a loved one who has been impacted by pediatric organ transplantation or Transplants for Children, establishing a memorial or tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor your donor, doctor or celebrate a special occasion such as transplant anniversary or birthday while supporting the work of our mission. Your memorial or tribute gift will be a lasting tribute to your loved one and make a difference in the lives of those we serve.
Back again on the heels of the highly successful inaugural event last year the second annual TFC Shootout Sporting Clays Event is a great way to enjoy a day with friends,show off your skills, win prizes, enjoy a great mean and all in support of-the important mission of Transplants for Children.
This years event will be held at the National Shooting Complex in San Antonio, Texas and will take place on June 8, 2019. Sponsorship are available and registration is open.
Making a gift of securities or mutual funds offers you the chance to support our work while realizing important benefits for yourself. When you donate appreciated securities or mutual funds you have held for more than on year, you can reduce or even eliminate federal capital gains taxes on the transfer. You may also be entitled to a federal income tax charitable deduction based on the fair market value of the securities at time of transfer.
Most importantly, you help make it possible for us to continue our mission.
Heritage Members enjoy special invitations to annual appreciate events and recognition on the Tree of Hope proudly displayed in our TFC headquarters.
If you want to leave a legacy at TFC, our experienced gift planners will work with you, your attorney, and other advisers to design the best gift plan for you. Funding a dual-benefit gift, such as a charitable gift annuity or charitable trust, provides you and your family with significant benefits and provides support for TFC.
