Donor Family Care Program

Iowa Donor Network's Donor Family Care Program

At Iowa Donor Network, we understand that saying goodbye to a loved one is difficult and everyone’s grief journey is different. The role of our Donor Family Care program is to offer support and resources to meet the needs of each donor family member, regardless of their relationship to the donor or type of loss they have endured. Our Donor Family Companions offer a listening ear, facilitate correspondence between donor families and recipients, offer updates as to how a donor’s gift(s) impacted others, and provide information on available grief materials and support groups as well as notify families of up-coming donation related events.

"Being a volunteer has helped bring comfort to the most devastating moment of my life. I now understand how one person can really change the world. It is my hope that by volunteering and sharing my story, I will encourage others to sign up to be organ, eye and tissue donors.”

Our Vision:

All are inspired to donate life.
