About Us

A 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, our mission is to bridge the gap between hope and opportunity by educating and enriching the lives of those affected by organ transplant.

Our Mission & History

Founded in August 1992 by Tommy Smith, a kidney transplant recipient, GTF is focused on providing financial, educational, and emotional assistance during a time that is often overwhelming for those undergoing or waiting for a transplant.

Our Impact in Georgia

With over $2.4 million distributed annually in financial assistance, GTF is the primary source for transplant patient assistance and support for all solid organ transplantation in the entire state of Georgia.
