OUR MISSION

ORGANIZE is applying new technologies and new ideas to the organ donation space.

There are almost 120,000 Americans waiting for a transplant, and 20 of them are dying every day. That’s not good enough for us. It shouldn’t be good enough for you.

ORGANIZE and its partners are doing whatever we can to register more donors, and are trying to build a system that makes it as easy as possible to do so.

The Problem

The Solution

We can decrease the organ shortage by applying smarter technologies and more creative partnerships, and advocating for data-driven policies.
