Who We Are

Iowa Donor Net­work (IDN) is a non-prof­it orga­ni­za­tion that oper­ates as the pri­ma­ry con­tact for organ, tis­sue and eye dona­tion ser­vices for the state of Iowa. The Cen­ters for Medicare and Med­ic­aid Ser­vices have cer­ti­fied IDN to func­tion as the sin­gle organ pro­cure­ment agency in the state. IDN also serves as the tis­sue recov­ery agency for the state.

As an orga­ni­za­tion, we strive to pro­vide the best pos­si­ble care to our donor fam­i­lies, facil­i­tate the recov­ery of organs and tis­sues, edu­cate the com­mu­ni­ties we serve and sup­port spe­cial events to pro­mote dona­tion through­out Iowa. To ful­fill our mis­sion, we col­lab­o­rate with the Iowa Lions Eye Bank, health­care pro­fes­sion­als and orga­ni­za­tions statewide to hon­or the gift of life.

What We Do

  • Pro­vide Iowans with the infor­ma­tion need­ed to make an informed deci­sion about becom­ing a reg­is­tered donor
  • Man­age the Iowa Donor Registry
  • Sup­port and hon­or donor families
  • Design process­es to ensure the safe­ty of donat­ed organs and tissue
  • Pro­vide clin­i­cal sup­port for organ and tis­sue recovery
  • Edu­cate pro­fes­sion­al part­ners about the dona­tion process

Our Vision:

All are inspired to donate life.
