Transplant Fundraising Program
Primarily a medication assistance and insurance premium plan, the Transplant Fundraising Program (TFP) has been developed by Georgia Transplant Foundation (GTF) to assist transplant patients in preparing financially for ongoing transplant costs. These programs provide fundraising assistance and account management for transplant funds. Financial contributions are overseen by GTF staff and an Advisory Council providing fiscal accountability to transplant clients and their contributors. In addition, detailed information about transplant accounts, including disbursements and contributions are available upon request.
GTF Offers Two Types of Accounts:
UNMATCHED account provides accounts for fundraising dollars. These accounts may be opened pre- or post-transplant and funds may be used for expanded transplant costs such as housing and travel as well as medication expenses. You must have a fundraising account held at GTF to be eligible for this account.
MATCHED account provides accounts for fundraising dollars but has eligibility criteria, which include applying pre-transplant, exhibiting financial or insurance need. These accounts provide up to a $10,000 match and are used primarily for post-transplant medication costs and insurance premiums. You must have a fundraising account held at GTF to be eligible for the match.
Both Programs Offer:
• On-going fundraising advice
• Monthly fundraising workshops
• GTF based personal webpage for fundraising
• Online donations by credit card
• Reimbursements processed within thirty (30) business days of receipt
• Option of having post-transplant medication directly billed from a GTF approved pharmacy to your GTF account
