Transplant Fundraising Program
Matched accounts provide up to a maximum of a $10,000 match and are used primarily for prescription medication costs and insurance premiums. This type of account must be applied for and approved pre-transplant. Matched accounts are provided for fundraising dollars but have eligibility criteria, including: being a Georgia resident, applying pre-transplant, and exhibiting financial or insurance need. Clients with this type of account have one-year from their application approval date to raise funds eligible for the match (a maximum of $10,000).
While GTF has not established a fundraising goal for you, we do encourage you to raise $10,000 to take advantage of the full match. To assist you in this process, we provide Fundraising Workshops to teach creative ways to raise money in your community. You have one year from the date of your acceptance to raise funds that will be eligible for match through this program.
If you have a matched account, you are reimbursed and matched AFTER the transplant, once you begin to buy/pay for your prescription post-transplant medications, insurance premiums, and/or approved post-transplant related expenses. You must have a fundraising account held at GTF to be eligible for the match.

• On-going fundraising advice
• Monthly fundraising workshops
• GTF based personal webpage for fundraising
