Champions for Donation are individuals and organizations undertaking exceptional efforts to advance donation and transplantation in Indiana, either through direct clinical work or advocacy on behalf of the mission of Indiana Donor Network.

Their continued dedication to saving and healing lives through organ and tissue donation is truly outstanding. We are excited to celebrate the 2023 class of Champions for Donation at this year’s Angel Fund Gala, which benefits Indiana Donor Network Foundation.
