Mendez National Institute of Transplantation Foundation

Thank you for your interest in signing up to be an organ, eye and tissue donor in California.

Join the Mendez National Institute of Transplantation Foundation to bring education and awareness on the importance of donor registration and organ transplants to our communities. The need is urgent: California has one of the largest organ transplant waiting lists, with more than 21,000 men women and children.

The Mendez National Institute of Transplantation Foundation (MNITF) is a public nonprofit organization that adheres to its mission of advancing the science and practice of organ transplantation and end-stage organ disease therapies through research, education, and innovation. Building upon the vision and legacy of our founders, Doctors Robert and Rafael Mendez, the MNITF awards grants semiannually to researchers through our Research Grant Program (RGP), in order to improve clinical outcomes and positively impact the field of transplantation.

YOU can help us in our fight to give more people on the waiting list hope that they, too, will get their second chance at life. Click “Sign Up Now” to register and make your wishes known.
