Our Partner Organizations
The American Living Organ Donor Fund has two main organizational partners. The first is the Center for Ethical Solutions(CES), a 501(c)(3) charity with IRS status as a non-profit to which all donations are tax deductible. CES sponsored the research that lead to the creation of the American Living Organ Donor Fund. The SOS (Solving the Organ Shortage) Project was initiated by CES in 2008. The conclusion, after six years of research, was that America needs to do a better job of helping American living organ donors meet their expenses. The American Living Organ Donor Fund was created as a project of CES to serve as a model organization for providing such desperately needed assistance specifically for living organ donors.
To help change the law to make more reimbursement possible through both the government and through private charities, CES sponsored the creation of Stop Organ Trafficking Now!, which is an IRS 501(C)(4) non-profit authorized to lobby Congress to pass laws to help living organ donors.
Government moves slowly, so CES decided to also sponsor the creation of charity that would start helping living donors right away while the battle over government programs continues. That organization is the American Living Organ Donor Fund. Once ALODF receives independent grant funding to cover its administrative costs its status as a CES project will end and it will become an independent charity. ALODF has applied for independent IRS status as a 501(c)(3) charity. That application is currently ending. But, in the meantime, all contributions to support ALODF through CES are tax deductible since because until ALODF has its own independent status as a charity, it is a project of CES which has charity status and to which all contributions are tax deductible.
The American Living Organ Donor Fund welcomes proposals to partner with other organizations.
