Organizations the Center has started
Stop Organ Trafficking Now! is a joint project of CES and ALODN which focuses on working to protect living organ donor rights and increase living organ donor benefits. SOTN focuses on laws that discriminate against living organ donors and on changing laws that encourage American transplant patients to seek organs on the black market. Our petition to encourage Congress to take up the issue of doing a better job of protection American living organ donors’ rights is on the SOTN website. www.stopotn.org (link to our petition is on the bottom-right side of the home page).
American Living Organ Donor Network is an IRS recognized 501(c)(3) public charity that serves living organ donors of all kinds (kidney, bone marrow, liver, and others). This organization advocates for donors, not transplant recipients. Our website has state by state information for benefits and services available for living organ donors, a living organ donor support group, and financial aid for living organ donors to help make their donation easier or, in some cases, even possible. www.HelpLivingOrganDonorsSaveLives.org or www.alodf.org.
The Center for Ethical Solutions is a non-partisan, non-profit 501(c)(3) tax exempt public charity. We are teaming with leading health-care researchers and ethicists working to inform and involve the public in medical ethics debates that affect their personal healthcare decision. The Center has the highest rating – Gold – from the Guide Star charity rating service that evaluates charities, among other things, for their financial transparency.
The Center’s biggest project is its SOS (Solving the Organ Shortage) project; but all our project involve finding practical ways to help the general public get involved in solving problems in patient-care ethics.
