Jacksonville Transplant Alliance
Please be sure to enter "Jacksonville Transplant Alliance" into the memo field on ClearGIVE.
The Jacksonville Transplant Alliance is a community of individuals and transplant-related organizations in the Northeast Florida area who are dedicated to providing donor education through social media, community events, and educational forums. Our goal is to increase the number of registered donors and to help recipients, their families, donor family members, and others within our community become greater ambassadors of organ and tissue donation so that together, we may save lives and shorten the waiting time for those awaiting transplant.
National Donor Sabbath is observed annually two weekends before Thanksgiving, from Friday through Sunday. This three-day observance seeks to include the days of worship for major religions practiced in the United States. During National Donor Sabbath, faith leaders from many religions, donor families, transplant recipients, and donation and transplantation professionals participate in services and programs to educate the public about the need for the lifesaving and healing gifts passed to others through transplantation, while also encouraging people to register their decision to be an organ, eye and tissue donors.
We invite you to use these downloadable resources within your local communities and houses of worship. You can also reach out to your local Donate Life contact if you are interested in hosting an event in your local community, want to find out how to get involved in an existing event, or would like more resources customized with your local state registry information.
National Donor Sabbath is Nov. 15-17. To learn how you and your faith leaders can help educate the public about organ, eye, and tissue donation, go to our News and Events page.
If you would like to support the JTA and its on-going efforts to educate the public about organ, eye, and tissue donation, and to support our area transplant patients, we welcome your contribution.
To make donations easy and tax-deductible, the JTA has partnered with the Nonprofit Center of Northeast Florida and ClearGIVE.
If you would like a member of JTA to speak to your church, school, social group, organization, or business about organ and tissue donation, or if you have a health fair you'd like JTA to attend, please contact us.
