Financial Assistance

GTF responds to overwhelming financial needs related to transplant by offering transitional, short-term support during these critical times.

Transplant patients and their families often face overwhelming financial needs related to their transplants.

Our Financial Assistance Programs are available to applicants who have demonstrated an acute financial need related to their transplant — one that cannot be met through other resources.

All programs are limited to Georgia residents. Programs serve solid organ transplant recipients, UNOS-listed candidates, dialysis patients seeking a transplant, and living donors. Applicants may access these programs through their dialysis or transplant center social worker.
