Established in 1983 by medical professionals, the National Transplant Assistance Fund (NTAF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to assisting organ/tissue transplant patients, and more recently, catastrophic injury patients, with the social, emotional, and financial problems that develop as a result of their disorders. NTAF educates and guides families in how to organize, launch, and sustain grass roots fundraising campaigns in their own communities. Money raised is used to pay for the uninsured expenses associated with severe medical conditions. The fund also promotes public education through organ donor drives, seminars, and lectures. The National Transplant Assistance Fund produces and distributes a wide variety of educational and support materials. These materials include a patient and family support brochure, an informational brochure for transplant professionals, organ/tissue donation brochures, a biannual newsletter, videos, organ donor cards, bumper stickers, fact sheets, buttons, green ribbons, and banners.
