Iowa Donor Network

Work­ing Togeth­er to Trans­form Lives ThroughOrgan & Tis­sue Dona­tion

As Iowa’s sole organ pro­cure­ment orga­ni­za­tion, we facil­i­tate both organ and tis­sue recov­ery and serve as the state’s pri­ma­ry con­tact for organ, tis­sue and eye dona­tion.


Putting your dollars to work

This can help provide a donor family with a recording of their loved one's heartbeat inside a pillow.


This can help us with our education and outreach efforts to inspire more Iowans to donate life.


This can help us train 10 new volunteers to spread the word about donation across the state.
