Mission Statement

The Gift of Life Foundation has been established to make Australians aware of our organ transplant crisis and encourage more Australians to become donors. We will promote this awareness by working with sporting organisations and sportsmen and women to actively support organ donorship.

  • One organ and tissue donor could help save and improve the quality of life of up to 10 people.
  • Anyone from the age of 12 months up to the age of 90 can potentially become an organ and tissue donor.
  • Organ transplants transform lives and are the best possible treatment for people with organ failure.

How to become a donor?

  • Steps you can take to ensure your wishes are followed through is to have a simple discussion with your partner, family and friends.
  • It is also important to register on the Australian Organ Donor Register (AODR). In the event of a death, where the patient is a potential donor, information about their decision will be accessed by a suitably qualified member of the medical staff from the AODR and provided to their family.
