BC Transplants manages many programs and campaigns to help raise awareness for the need and importance of organ donation.
Every year, dozens of patients die waiting for organ transplants in BC. And while 90% of people in our province agree with organ donation, only about 20% register their decision. Raising awareness and sharing information about the need for organs is one way we can help ensure people get the life-saving transplants they need.
Thanks to our dedicated volunteers and community partners, we’ve achieved great things over the years—but we still have a long way to go to save more lives.
Whether you’re an individual, a workplace, or a community group, BC Transplant offers a variety of programs to help you have conversations about organ donation in your community and raise awareness:
BC Transplant offers Mini-Campaign Kits, designed to make your Organ Donor Awareness initiative simple and successful. Whether it's an event in your community or you want to encourage your co-workers or classmates to register, the kit will make sure you have the materials you need.
For more information on campaign kits or to order one, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
There are a lot of misconceptions about organ donation. We believe the more we educate people about what it means to register as an organ donor, and the lifesaving benefits of transplantation, the more lives we can save.
A workplace registration drive is a great way to raise awareness for organ donation! We’ve made it easy with a toolkit that has everything you need to help you raise awareness and register donors.
At BC Transplant we know that the power of organ donation is best told through personal stories. If you would like to host a speaker to share their transplant story, please contact email@example.com.
BC Transplant also hosts numerous campaigns throughout the year to help increase awareness for organ donation and encourage more British Columbians to register their decision:Financial contributions
