Anatomical Gift Transplantation Fund

Anatomical Gift Transplantation Fund

In 1996 the Iowa Leg­is­la­ture estab­lished an Anatom­i­cal Gift Trans­plan­ta­tion Fund (AGTF) (see Iowa Code 142C.15). At the time of motor vehi­cle reg­is­tra­tion or renew­al, Iowans are asked if they wish to donate a dol­lar or more to this fund. These donat­ed funds may be used to award grants to trans­plant recip­i­ents or can­di­dates, liv­ing organ donors or legal rep­re­sen­ta­tives. The pur­pose of the grant is to pro­vide finan­cial assis­tance for the reim­burse­ment of out-of-pock­et costs incurred by the patient (appli­cant) and not avail­able from any oth­er third-par­ty payer.

The reim­burse­ments to the anatom­i­cal gift grant appli­cants are not con­sid­ered income and there­fore will not gen­er­ate a Form-1099. As per Iowa Code 422.7(30a) donors may sub­tract unre­im­bursed trav­el and lodg­ing expens­es and lost wages in an amount not to exceed $10,000. Appli­cants should con­fer with a finan­cial advi­sor and/​or tax pre­par­er with questions. 

Effec­tive Decem­ber 1, 2022 the AGTF grants are admin­is­tered by Iowa Donor Network.
