Give Blood, Share Joy Campaign

The “Give Blood, Share Joy” campaign has been developed by TEGNA Memphis in partnership with the Memphis offices of Vitalant and the National Foundation for Transplants.

Second Chances Begin Here

If you’re in need of an organ transplant, you’ve come to the right place. If you’re a family member of a transplant patient, we’re glad you’re here. If you’re a referring medical professional, we can help.

At NFT, we provide fundraising tools and guidance to help transplant patients raise funds to cover their out-of-pocket transplant-related expenses.  If you’re a patient, visit our “Get Help” page to get started.

Help is what we do

There are three key areas that highlight the many ways we help patients and their families navigate the organ transplant journey.

Fundraising Guidance

A fundraising consultant is assigned to every patient to assist their fundraising campaign. Consultants are full-time staff members, available M-F, 8:30 to 4:30 CST.

Payments & Reimbursement

Patients financial needs are immediate.  NFT provides prompt processing of submitted payment requests via direct payment to providers or direct deposit to the patient.

Peace of Mind

NFT relies on public trust to do our work and strive to continuously maintain that trust through our commitment to ethical principles, transparency, and accountability.  Our operation is one of the most efficient of its kind.


“NFT took a great deal of stress off my family and me, so I could focus on healing. I was given a second chance to raise my son and to be around for many years to come.”
