Gifts and Funding

Your support will make a difference in the lives of transplant patients and families. Donations to the James D. Eason Transplant Institute at Methodist University Hospital will support innovative and groundbreaking research and education as well as supportive programs and financial assistance resources to improve the lives of transplant recipients, organ donors, and their families. Contact Zach Pretzer at (901) 516-0509 or zach.pretzer@mlh.org to learn more.  To give now, text TRANSPLANT to 71760.

Gifts provide support for research, training and purchase of new equipment. Permanent gifts, or endowments, can provide ongoing support for a specific area of the Institute. Gifts can be made in the form of cash or appreciated securities. 

Events are held throughout the year to raise funds for the TRC, such as our annual Transplant Fore Life Golf Classic. Contributions to the Transplant Resource Center Patient Emergency Grant Program provide one-time financial assistance to organ transplant recipients, organ donors and their families. Assistance is provided to cover expenses related to medication co-payments, phone and utility bills and transportation expenses.
